Plant a Row for the Hungry Collection

Monday, October 9, 2023

Join Cooperative Extension and Chesterfield Master Gardeners in support of Plant A Row for the Hungry (PAR), a national people-helping-people program that encourages gardeners to grow a little extra and donate the produce. Chesterfield gardeners can help feed the hungry by donating extra produce at the Cooperative Extension office, Mondays from 9-10:30 a.m. (excluding county holidays - Memorial Day (May 29), Juneteeth (June 19) and Labor Day (Sept. 4)) and first Saturdays from 10-11 a.m. (July Saturday date will be July 8 and September Saturday date wil be Sept. 9), from May 1 to Nov. 4. Donated produce should:

  • be recently harvested
  • have no signs of mold, spoilage, bruising or insects
  • have excess dirt brushed off, but remain unwashed
  • be brought in clean paper bags (preferred) or plastic bags

Donations are given to partner organizations such as SevaTruck RVA, Cartias and A Place of Miracles Cafe, which turn the produce into fresh nutritious meals to feed the hungry in Chesterfield and RVA.

For more information, please contact Chesterfield Cooperative Extension.
