Grow Your Own Row
In partnership with Snap-Ed (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education) NEW Hunger Coalition launched a new program in spring 2023 that helps food pantry clients learn to grow their own food.
NEWHC is providing vegetable plant starts grown by local farmers and instruction to clients that sign up for classes. Meadowlark Farm and Dog Wild Farm are growing tomatoes, bell peppers, zucchini, cucumbers, and basil starts. Echos Lakes Ranch is providing seed potatoes.
Through the generosity of local gardeners, we are also giving donated seeds, soil, planters, and pots to those unable to purchase materials for themselves. Participants will receive follow-up support through the growing season. Grow Your Own Row program helps people feed themselves.
