BOISE -- It's harvest time at the South Idaho Correctional Institution.
Inmates at the prison help produce potatoes and green beans at the six-acre farm.
This is the third year inmates have operated the garden.
The majority of the food goes to the Idaho Foodbank to help meet needs of folks who are food insecure.
"This partnership has allowed us to set up a sustainable, predictable supply of food that's coming from this farm into the Idaho Foodbank network," said Karen Vauk, CEO, Idaho Foodbank. "It's great food. It's the healthy food that we want more and more of. And by having this partnership working as well as it is -- it means we're going to see increased volume.
So far this summer, the garden has already produced more than two tons of green beans, and it will likely produce more than 150,000 pounds of potatoes.
