Get Involved

Help the Foodbank provide fresh produce to the hungry in your community by donating your surplus produce row to the Foodbank. The Foodbank is dedicated to providing nutritious food to those in need and plans to distribute five million pounds of fresh produce to our eight-county service territory in 2012 at no cost to our member agencies.

The Plant a Row for the Hungry program is rooted in the heartfelt tradition of gardeners sharing a bountiful harvest with others. This program of the Garden Writers Association has provided over 18 million pounds of fresh produce to hunger-relief programs across the country since 1995. Locally, look for articles about this program in the Akron Beacon Journal home section on Saturdays, written by Mary Beth Breckenridge.
