QUALITY MATTERS

New Growth

We know that everyone wants and deserves high-quality food.  That's why we ask our Grow A Row partners to bring donations that are clean, fresh, properly refrigerated, ripe but not overripe, whole, uncut, undamaged produce in clean packaging. 

* Rule of thumb if you wouldn't eat it at your own home, then we don't want to give it to our Food Club members.
