Gifts from the Garden

Gifts from the Garden

How You Can Participate:

Whether you bought too many veggies at the store or had a large crop in your home garden, your extra produce can make a difference to people in need.

Local gardeners and farmers can even plant one extra row of fruits or veggies in their gardens and donate surplus produce from that extra row directly to the Food Bank.

The Plant A Row for the Hungry campaign was launched nationally in 1995 by the Garden Writers Association of America. Participation is easy! Local gardeners and farmers literally plant one extra row of fruits or veggies in their gardens and donate surplus produce from that extra row directly to the Food Bank.

What we need most?

Fresh, clean fruits and vegetables.
