Plant More & Fight Hunger!
Feeding the Gulf Coast supports Plant a Row for the Hungry, a nationwide initiative that encourages gardeners to grow a little extra and donate this fresh and nutritious produce to local hunger-relief organizations, from food banks to food pantries and soup kitchens.
A single cucumber plant can yield up to 15-20 cucumbers. A single bell pepper plant can yield 6-8 peppers. Imagine how much you can help by planting an entire row in your garden.
We accept donations of fruits and vegetables that travel and keep well. Plants perfect for donation are carrots, radishes, green beans, collards, winter squash, tomatoes, cucumbers, corn, peppers, onions, potatoes, okra, beets, satsumas, citrus fruits and summer squash (please keep maximum length for zucchini under 8 inches). Please do not wash your produce before donating. Due to their perishability, we prefer to not accept donations of lettuce or fresh herbs.
Email our Produce Sourcing and Agriculture Projects Manager, Cindy Bloom if you’d like to register your garden and receive recognition for your efforts.
