PLANT A ROW FOR THE HUNGRY
Calling All Gardeners. Plant a Row for the Hungry!
The Food Bank is encouraging local gardeners like yourself to plant a row of crops for the hungry this year. Why not team up with a friend or a neighborhood group. Your gardening skills and fresh vegetables can make a difference! You can help by planting a row of crops for our hungry neighbors in need.
What can gardeners donate?
Where and when can you drop off vegetables?
There are two options:
1) Bring your donation to the Food Bank of the Southern Tier, Monday-Friday, 8:00 am - 4:00 pm, or
2) Bring your donation to a food pantry or other program in or near your community.
The Food Bank of the Southern Tier is a participating organization in Plant a Row for the Hungry,
a campaign of the Garden Writers Association.
In 2013, 10,400 pounds of produce were donated to the Food Bank through the Plant a Row for the Hungry program.
