BARRE, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Foodbank is encouraging people visiting pick-your-own apple orchards to pick extra apples to donate to those in need.

Officials say last year the Pick-for-Your-Neighbor program brought in nearly 19,000 Vermont apples to the charitable food system.

This year 21 orchards are taking part. Woodchuck Hard Cider is providing financial support to the program for the purchase of bags, signs, and posters. The company is also sending employers to Champlain Orchards next week to pick and purchase apples to donate.
