PLANT A ROW FOR THE HUNGRY!

You can make a difference by sharing your harvest!
Plant a Row for the Hungry is a public service project of Spokane-based The Inland Empire Gardeners and nationally by the Garden Writers gardeners to donate their extra vegetables and fruit to local food banks. Because the GWA Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization, participants can take $1.50 per pound donation on federal income taxes.

DONATING TO PLANT A ROW FOR THE HUNGRY

WHERE TO DONATE? Any neighborhood food bank or organization that provides meals for low-income people and their families.

WHAT TO DONATE? Because storage space can be limitied sturdy vegetables that can take a day or two sitting on the shelf are best. These choices include beans, corn, tomatoes, potatoes, squash, peas, cucumbers, apples, cherries, cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, carrots, root crops, onions and garlic to name a few.

Easily damaged or perishable vegetables, fruits and herbs should be brought in close to the day the food bank distributes food or given to soup kitchens where they can be used quickly.

HOW MUCH? Any time you have fresh produce AND when the food bank is accepting donations. Many food banks have set days and hours to receive food. Call and check before you go.

Please let us know how we did with this year's parade and how we might improve our next edition.
