Food Bank Asks Community to 'Plant a Row' for the Hungry

Posted: Updated:

From the Food Bank of Northern Nevada: 

The Food Bank of Northern Nevada is consistently working to increase the amount of nutritious food they distribute to families who face hunger in northern Nevada. They are once again asking  for people in the community to donate food from their gardens to help in this effort. To address the health needs of their clients nearly half of the food distributed by the organization is now fresh produce.  

The Food Bank of Northern Nevada, along with many of their partner agencies, are asking groups or individuals who plant gardens to consider the hungry when making their plans. Supporters are asked to “Plant a Row” for the hungry or simply to donate their excess produce. Partner agencies of the Food Bank have given days and times that they will be able to accept fresh produce and turn it around very quickly for distribution to the hungry people in the community. The list of agencies that people can donate their produce to will be updated throughout the season and posted at fbnn.org.  

If community members would like to increase the amount of fresh produce that is distributed by the agency but they are not able to grow food, they can also set up a virtual food drive to help secure fresh produce for their hungry neighbors. More information about the Virtual Food Drive option is available here.
