Donate a Row

Donate a Row programs encourage individuals, families, and communities to donate fresh produce from their gardens to those in need. This simple and sustainable initiative can help to combat food insecurity and provide nutritious food options for vulnerable populations.

Participating in a Donate a Row program is easy. Simply plant an extra row of fruits or vegetables in your garden, and donate the harvest to a local food bank or community organization. You can also encourage your friends, family, and neighbors to participate by starting a community garden or organizing a neighborhood donation drive.

By donating fresh produce, you can help to ensure that everyone in your community has access to healthy, locally-grown food. This is particularly important for individuals and families who may not have the resources to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables on their own.

In addition to supporting local food banks and community organizations, participating in a Donate a Row program can also benefit your own health and well-being. Gardening is a great way to get outside, exercise, and connect with nature. It can also be a fun and rewarding way to learn new skills and meet new people.

So why not start your own Donate a Row program today? Whether you have a large garden or just a few pots on your balcony, every donation can make a difference in the lives of those in need. Join us in our efforts to promote healthy eating, sustainable agriculture, and community engagement through the simple act of donating a row
