Plant a Row for the Hungry

2020 GROWING SEASON:  COVID 19 UPDATE

The Plant a Row program has been suspended for the 2020 growing season to allow time for the current pandemic situation to resolve.  This program is anticipated to resume next summer.  

What is Plant a Row for the Hungry?                                                                                                                                                  PAR Logo    

Plant a Row for the Hungry is rooted in the tradition of gardeners sharing a bountiful harvest with others.    
It is a program that encourages home gardeners to help the hungry in their community by planting and    
harvesting produce, flowers, and herbs.

Locally, the cooperative effort between the Sedgwick County Extension Master Gardeners and the Kansas Food Bank is making it possible for home gardeners to make a positive impact on hunger and nutrition challenges in Kansas. 

What is the impact? 
  • Nationally, since 1995, over 20 million pounds of produce providing over 80 million meals have been donated by American gardeners.
  • Locally, since 2000, 809,289 pounds of produce have been donated by local gardeners to the Kansas Food Bank.
  • In 2019 over 27,000 pounds of produce donated.
