This past Saturday, the Lehman-Idetown United Methodist Church Youth Group worked the soil and planted potatoes in the garden. There is much more work to be done in the coming weeks but we are off to a good start.

At the Food Pantry Garden, we grow a lot of food and we give a lot of people hope, but with your help we can do so much more. This summer we are inviting you to join in a program called Grow-A-Row. Anyone can take part and it’s easy to do. All you have to do is plant an extra row of fruits or vegetables when you start your growing season. When that row is ready to harvest, you can take it to a local donation site and give the gift of food to a family in need.
Fresh produce is especially hard for most pantries to come by due to it’s perishable nature, but it is the healthiest and tastiest way to enjoy most fruits and vegetables. You can grow as much or as little as you have space for – every pound helps. You can also invite friends, family, neighbors, coworkers, or classmates to take part in the process with you.
We’ve created a starter packet which includes more information and a Donation Log. Click HERE to download the packet. Within the packet, you will find a Registration Form. Fill it out and send it back to us and you’re ready to go.
