Plant a Row for the Hungry

Plant a Row for the Hungry

Do you have zillions of zucchini, tons of tomatoes, or bushels of beans? This summer the library is a drop-off location for the U of I Extension Office’s “Plant a Row for the Hungry” program, which collects fresh produce to donate to local food pantries. Bring your extra fruit, veggies, or herbs to the library on Tuesdays between 3:30 and 5:30 PM.

This program will run from July 11 to September 26.
