Give the Gift of your Green Thumb
“Plant a Row” for those in need

If you have your own home garden, you can help by donating your extra garden produce to the Food Bank. We will use your donated produce to serve clients visiting our Mobile Food Pantry distributions and our Kids’ Farmers Markets. 

Through the Garden Writer Association there is a national program called “Plant a Row for the Hungry.”  The program encourages gardeners to plant at least one row “for someone in need”  and donate it to the Food Bank, or a local food pantry or soup kitchen. You can visit www.gardenwriters.org/PAR for more information about the Plant a Row program. Master gardeners may also be interested in helping. 

How do I donate produce?

  1. Call – and we will connect you with a local partner agency
  2. Drop off – to the Food Bank during normal business hours
  3. If you have 1,000+ lbs., we can arrange a pick up
