Plant-A-Row is now accepting donations. Share the bounty and benefit more than 80 local organizations that ensure fresh food makes it from the field to a table in need.

Local gardeners, growers, and Farmers’ Market shoppers can donate fresh produce at the Hoosier Hills Food Bank truck parked at the Bloomington Community Farmers’ Market (on the corner of North Morton Street and West Eighth Street) from 7am to noon each Saturday, from May through October.

Plant-A-Row contributions are also gratefully accepted at the Hoosier Hills Food Bank, Monday through Friday, from 9am to 5pm, at 2333 West Industrial Park Drive.

Plant-A-Row is a collaborative project of growers -- assisted by Bloomingfoods, City of Bloomington Parks & Recreation, Hilltop Garden and Nature Center, Hoosier Hills Food Bank, Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard Food Pantry, and Worm’s Way. Our goal is to keep alive the gardeners’ tradition of sharing the bounty of the garden. More than 80 local agencies benefit from the program. When there is extra produce to share, Plant-A-Row helps ensure that all that good food is passed along from field to table.
