We collect fresh produce from area gardeners, package it for clients, and deliver to local food pantries the same day. A program of Arlington's Friends of Urban Agriculture, we also support our network of Plot Against Hunger gardeners with free seeds and seedlings, help find volunteers, present a series of Garden Talks and other educational events and respond to their needs in other ways.

We receive garden produce at Rock Spring Church Mondays 1-3 pm May - July, and Mondays and Thursdays 1-3 pm July - October. Our website also provides a list of other pantries for gardeners to choose from.
ProducePedia is a free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries. Each entry includes information on color, taste, and possible uses. People unfamiliar with the vegetable or fruit will learn how to use it, and those who are familiar with it still might learn a fun fact or two!
The Cooperative Extension sites have a wealth of information for any backyard gardener. Once you go to the site (each one if very different from the others) look for a link for “homes and gardens”, “landscape”, “consumer horticulture”, etc. to find information on improving your backyard garden. Neighboring state sites may offer information your own state’s site lacks.
