Grow an Extra Row

Calling on all Gardeners!

Join us this growing season and “Grow an Extra Row” to help alleviate hunger in your community.

Fight hunger from home!

The Grow an Extra Row campaign, encourages gardeners to grow a little extra produce to donate to your local food pantry. Donations of any freshly picked fruits, vegetables, and herbs are always welcome and much needed. The fresher the better! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, more people are in need….and what they need are healthy options to fight off disease!

If you are in the Waukee or Clive area and are unable to drop off your food, contact Adria Huseth at ahuseth@chpcommunity.org for assistance.
