Support the Annual Fund
As we mark our 20th anniversary at America’s Grow-a-Row, we remain 100% committed to our core value that everyone deserves access to fresh food for healthy living. Families and individuals who are being stretched financially often cannot afford the nutritious fresh fruits and vegetables they need for their wellbeing.
America’s Grow-a-Row’s first donation in 2002 was 120 pounds of farm-fresh produce to the Flemington Area Food Pantry. Today, 20 years later, we donate 2.5 million pounds of healthy food throughout New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, the Mid-Atlantic region, and beyond each year.
Our partnership with the Flemington Area Food Pantry continues today not only through fresh produce donation but also through healthy eating education with the ComMITT Kit meal program for families facing food insecurity. Participating families receive all the ingredients and instructions to make a healthy meal and commit to preparing and eating it together.
Here’s one family’s response to the program, “We cooked the meal as a family and were so happy to enjoy a healthy meal. It was so nice to teach the kids how to cook and to have all the ingredients and measuring cups provided. We loved it.”
You can help get healthy meals onto the plates of those who need it most with your donation. Every $1 you give provides five servings of wholesome fresh produce. Your donation this year is so important as rising inflation is making it even harder for folks to put healthy food on the table. Donate today!
