Plant-A-Row for the Hungry (PAR)

University of Illinois Extension Winnebago County Master Gardeners work to raise awareness about the issues surrounding hunger in our community.

Plant a Row for the Hungry provides a much needed outlet for vegetable gardeners to donate their over-abundance of produce, which helps meet the increasing demands on local food pantries.

University of Illinois Extension inspires gardeners to "plant an extra row" of veggies in their gardens with the intent of donating that extra produce to help end hunger.
