Plant a row for the hungry...
Plant a row for the hungry is a great start on sharing home grown produce. Their website is actually the Garden Writer's Association. When I need further gardening help - these guys are the experts. They have a national campaign to give back by encouraging gardeners to plant an extra row for the hungry.
Don't know what to plant? Find a listing of your local food pantries to see what items are needed and their procedures for accepting donations.
The best food pantry websites are found by searching your local area.
Here's info for all you fellow Hoosiers about local Indiana food pantries and local food rescue.
