Grow a Row, Give a Row!

Do you have a garden and love growing food? Do you love to share that food?
This growing season, why not be part of a global movement and share that love of growing food by dedicating a row in your garden to donate to the Cambridge Self Help Food Bank?

FAQ

How does it work?
You have a garden plot. You are excited to grow food and happen to be growing food for yourself/your family and friends anyway. Plant an extra row or a few extra plants that you commit to giving away when they are ready! Easy as that!

What should I grow?
Anything you are excited about! Tomatoes, greens, root vegetables, cucumbers, melons… any fresh fruits and vegetables are welcome!

Should I clean the dirt off them first?
Yes, please!

Do I need to package them or do anything?
No! Please handle the produce how you would if you were going to eat it. No special packaging is required. We do not accept prepared or cooked foods from home kitchens. Please give them in their whole form!

When should I bring my produce?
Just like at a market stand, aiming to bring it as close to the harvest time as possible to maintain freshness is ideal.

Where do I bring the produce?
Bring it to the Cambridge Self Help Food Bank at 54 Ainslie Street any time during our open hours: Monday and Tuesday 12-4:30, Wednesday 9-4:30, Thursday 9-6:30 and Friday 9-4:30. We will weight it in and distribute it to participants, member agencies and programs. If you stick around, we can let you know how much it weighed too! If these times do not work, please contact Siobhan at 519-622-6550 X202 to arrange a pick-up!
