Mission Statement

PAR's mission is to enable individuals, corporations and over 84 million gardening households in the U.S. to help America's most vulnerable citizens and the food agencies serving them by donating whatever fruits and vegetables they can.

Nothing beats the taste and nutrition of fresh-picked vegetables. Your garden can help a lot of hungry people in need.

Description

Plant A Row for the Hungry is a people-helping-people program to help feed the hungry in local neighborhoods and communities. Launched in 1995 by the Garden Writers Association (GWA), Plant A Row encourages gardeners to grow a little extra and donate the produce to local soup kitchens and food pantries serving the homeless and hungry.

In 2009, the Plant A Row for the Hungry (PAR) program celebrates 15 years of supporting gardeners committed to alleviating hunger in the U.S. and Canada. Numerous volunteers have made our achievements possible and have donated over 14 million pounds of produce.

PAR is endorsed by Feeding America (formerly America's Second Harvest), Master Gardeners, American Community Gardening Association, American Nursery and Landscape Association, National Gardening Association, and by nurseries, seedsmen and garden suppliers across the United States and Canada.

Join us now!

ScottsMiracle-Gro will donate one million pounds of produce to help feed those at risk for hunger. We are asking Americans to join us and help double that donation by adding a row for those in need and donating the extra harvest to a local food agency, soup kitchen or hunger relief organization.

If 40,000 people donate 25 pounds of produce -- roughly the equivalent of one full grocery bag -- we'd hit our goal. It's easier than you think.
