Tips on starting a new gleaning program.
The Plant a Row for the Hungry program encourages community members to dedicate a row (or more) of fruit, vegetables and/or herbs in their garden to help feed those in need.

RFH acts as a conduit between farmers and the programs that serve hungry individuals and families in our region. Farmers are occasionally left with surplus fruits and vegetables that can’t be sold due to minor imperfections. Traditionally, this nutritious produce would be sent to a landfill or left to rot in the fields. Instead, RFH directs it to those in need.
