Plant a row

It is planting time and a wonderful time to be thinking about your local food shelf. Think about putting in an extra plant or an extra row for the food shelf. People that use the food shelf love home grown fruits and vegetables as much as you do. You do not need to donate a lot of produce at one time. Perhaps you have 2 extra tomatoes or 3 extra cucumbers. We will take them!

So keep in mind your local food shelf when your garden begins to flourish and your crops are coming in faster than you can eat them. The local food shelf would love to take them off your hands! Remember children love carrots and cucumbers and cherry tomatoes.




Give Big Where You Live


This April, culminating BIG, BIG, BIG on April 25th, thousands of Wisconsin area residents are going to show their support for their favorite nonprofit organizations. We need you. On that day, every donation we will get will go further to help claim our share of thousands of dollars in prize money to help serve those in need of food in Polk County. Please consider giving. #FeedPolk
