Grow-A-Row

Fresh produce is an essential component of a healthy diet but is not always accessible to someone on a tight budget.   Grow-A-Row is an excellent opportunity to bridge community, build relationships, and provide our clients with fresh, local produce.  With the start of the growing season, we’re looking for gardeners to donate some of their garden produce to the Food Bank.  By choosing to Grow-A-Row for the food bank, your effort ensures that the under-served in our community has access to high-quality produce.

How Do I Participate?

Plan to grow an extra row or two, determine a percentage of your garden produce to donate or donate the excess of what you’re already growing.  We happily accept the donation of any fruits, vegetables or fresh herbs. No sign-up needed, just bring the produce in when you harvest it!

Support

We will always be available for questions. Receipts for tax deductions are available upon request.

Produce Preparation and Distribution

Please wash or rinse any excessive dirt from the produce.

Donation Times

Our warehouse is open from 8 am-5 pm Monday-Friday and Tuesday evenings until 7 pm.  Donations can be accepted anytime during those hours.  There is no need to call ahead.
