Local gardeners are being encouraged to plant an extra row of vegetables and donate their harvest to Community Connections Food Bank in an effort to get more fresh vegetables for local families in need.
People have been bringing the agency’s Food Bank fresh vegetables for years but now they’re hoping that by spreading the word about Plant-a-Row/Grow-a-Row they’ll be able to bring in more fresh vegetables for their clients, who mostly get canned fruits and vegetables. Those are okay but are no comparison to fresh fruits and vegetables.
Donations can be dropped off at the Food Bank, downstairs in the Legion Friday mornings 8:30 – 11 am. For more information please call Patti Larson at 250-837-2920 ext. 28
