Grow a Row FC is seeking volunteers to join its community-wide effort to grow fresh produce for Food For Others and its food pantry partners during this public health and economic crisis. Participating is easy: Pledge to dedicate a row of your garden or container to growing food to donate and report to Grow a Row FC the weight or size (example: five carrots) of your donations. No amount is too small.
Hundreds of seed packets as well as a limited supply of transplants, soil test kits and compost to give to volunteer growers are available for free. Mentors are also available to give advice and support. Volunteers can either deliver donations to the food bank themselves or take them to a drop-off site.
Food for Others Providence Food Drive
The Providence District Office has partnered with Food For Others on a community based food drive to feed those in need during COVID-19.
Thank you Miller Heights Neighborhood Association for coming together and donating over 800 lbs. worth of food to Providence District's very own Food for Others. Also, a big shoutout to all the volunteers and staff who made this delivery process so smooth and simple.
This is the first of many food drives we are coordinating with the community!
