Help the hungry: Plant an extra row

Spring has sprung, and the United Way Community Impact Coalition is hoping to use the warming weather to help feed the hungry.

Spring has sprung, and the United Way Community Impact Coalition is hoping to use the warming weather to help feed the hungry.

The United Way Community Impact Coalition is asking everyone with home gardens to plant an extra row for those in need of food.

When it’s ready for harvest, gardeners can donate it to the United Way, which will get the fruits and vegetables to agencies that can share the veggies with those most in need.

“In today’s economic climate, this is an excellent, affordable way to give back to the community and to have a significant impact,” noted Jessica Boyer of the United Way of Douglas and Pope Counties. “Now is the time to plan your garden – plant that extra row.”

This information was provided through the efforts of the Community Impact Coalition.

If you would like to know more about the work being done locally by the United Way Community Impact Coalition, contact Boyer, United Way Community Impact director, at (320) 763-4840 or visit www. uwdp.org.
