Plant a Row, Grow a Row

The growing season is well underway. As many of you may remember, we kicked off the season with our Feed a City Fun Run at Fort Edmonton. We had an exceptional turnout of 82 runners and raised $1,185! We deeply appreciate the support of our partners: Running Room, Little Potato Company and City of Edmonton Waste Management, not to mention the incredible gift of produce we will receive at harvest time from Fort Edmonton Park.

Last Wednesday, we were invited to the Southwest Edmonton Farmer’s Market. It was a wonderful chance to talk to food producers, gardening enthusiasts and people who appreciate fresh and local food. We will be back out there in the fall to accept donations from anyone who has Planted a Row and Grown a Row for Edmonton’s Food Bank.

Check out all the farmers markets in the area this summer. Donations of fresh produce can be made at our warehouse located at 11508 – 120 Street, Monday through Saturday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.

Stay tuned for growing news………
