PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Members of a Pittsfield church say they’re heartbroken by the theft of 500 pounds of squash grown in a church garden that was going to be donated to the needy.

The acorn and butternut squash from the Pittsfield Church of Christ’s “Giving Garden” occurred overnight Wednesday.

Pastor Russell Moody saw some boxes apparently left behind by the thieves marked “Farm Fresh Local Produce,” and at first thought someone had left the boxes for the church to use. Then he saw that the garden had been stripped.

Moody tells The Berkshire Eagle there’s no need to steal, because the church will gladly give food to the needy.

Church members suspect that because of the amount stolen, and the commercial boxes, the thief intends to sell the food.
