Gifts from the Garden

The Plant A Row for the Hungry campaign was launched nationally in 1995 by the Garden Writers Association of America. Participation is easy! Local gardeners and farmers literally plant one extra row of fruits or veggies in their gardens and donate surplus produce from that extra row directly to the Food Bank.

Drop off location:

355 Industry Drive, Auburn, AL

The Food Bank can accept food donations as follows:

Monday- Friday– 7:00 am – 3:30 pm

How You Can Participate:

No matter how little space you have to plant an additional row of vegetables for giving, you can make a great contribution! If you regularly plant too much, the excess will mean a great deal to people in need.

What we need most?

Fresh, clean fruits and vegetables.
