|Plant A Row For The Hungry Montgomery|
“2020 Plant A Row For The Hungry Montgomery” Campaign
HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?
The Montgomery County Master Gardener Association is partnering with local food banks to encourage gardeners and farmers to plant an extra row of produce for the hungry. Our needs are critical in Montgomery County right now!
Your produce contributions will be donated to local soup kitchens and food pantries serving the homeless and hungry in local communities. To enroll in the Montgomery Campaign – please fill out the form below, and hit submit. Drop off fresh produce at Loaves & Fishes, Urban Ministries, Manna Café and then log your pounds of produce below.
PLEASE REMEMBER THIS CRITERIA FOR DONATING TO THE LOCAL FOOD BANKS:
Follow these steps when selecting, handling, storing and transporting the produce you plan to donate. • If you have a large amount of produce, please call in advance to let the food bank know that you are coming. • No rotten produce-if you can’t eat it, our clients cannot eat it! • Offer only good quality, freshly picked produce to food pantries. • Handle fresh fruits and vegetables safely to minimize the risk of foodborne illness. • Don’t mix produce types. Keep each type in separate, clean, food-grade containers or bags. • Clean as much mud and dirt as possible off of the produce you plan to donate. • Choose produce that has no signs of mold, spoilage, bruising or insects.
