Plant A Row for the Hungry
The Plant A Row for the Hungry program encourages anyone with a plot of land set aside for a garden to dedicate a row of fruit or vegetables to help feed people in need. Plant A Row also works with local farmers' markets, farms and orchards to collect unsold, wholesome produce for local hunger-relief efforts.
The success of Plant A Row hinges on community involvement. Home gardeners, farmers, schools, places of worship, youth and community organizations, and area businesses can help make a difference for their neighbors in need by planting a row of seed and donating their surplus to Second Harvest and other local hunger-relief organizations.
Farms and orchards also can plant an extra row to benefit Eastern Washington and North Idaho residents at risk of hunger. Because of the amount of food they grow, farmers and growers can make a big difference with just one row of fruit trees or vegetable plants aiding in the fight against hunger.
You can bring your produce to Second Harvest located at 810 E. Chemical Dr. in Kennewick from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, or click here for more information. Your donation will be weighed and you will receive a Plant A Row receipt, giving you a $1.50 per pound tax deduction. If you have any questions, contact Nathan at 545-0787 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
