As area growers and gardeners alike continue to plant fruits and vegetables, they can help the hungry by planting an extra row of produce to support area food banks.
The Foodbank of the Virginia Peninsula participates in the Plant a Row for the Hungry program and accepts fresh produce donations to feed its clients.
“We’ll take about any types of fruits and vegetables,” said Loretta Jones, Foodbank of the Virginia Peninsula chief development officer. “Fresh fruits and vegetables go straight into our seniors’ and kids’ programs.”
