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 low income people with access to 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 signing up for the Grow A Row program, your effort ensures that the under-served in our community has access to high quality, fresh 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.
We will always be available for questions. You can download a Gallatin Valley Food Bank Grow-A-Row Participant Sign for your garden. Receipts for tax deductions are available upon request.
Produce Preparation and Distribution
Please wash or rinse any excessive dirt from the produce.
Our warehouse is open from 8 am-5 pm Monday-Friday. Donations can be accepted anytime during those hours. There is no need to call ahead.
