Ways to help the Plot Against Hunger Program:
- Plant an extra row! Donating your extra harvest is an effective way of assisting. AFAC has free seeds available for planting.
- Do you have extra vegetable seedlings? Share them with our clients or with gardeners who have pledged to “plant a row.”
- Is your neighbor going out of town and leaving their vegetables to ripen? Ask if you can harvest their bounty and donate it to AFAC.
- Ask your faith-based organization to be a produce drop-off site during summer months.
- Start a “Plot Against Hunger” garden at your child’s school or at your organization.
- Do you buy your produce from a community supported agriculture (CSA) program? Ask your CSA farmer if they will donate excess produce or shares of the CSA program.
- Join our market teams and pick up produce at Arlington’s farmers markets at the end of market day.
- Glean fields with area gleaning organizations and bring fresh produce back to AFAC.
- Do you have extra space on your property? Consider lending it to gardeners who would like to garden for AFAC.
- Do you like to garden, but don’t have a space for it? Consider working a few hours each week in a Plot Against Hunger garden in Arlington.
