What is Plant a Row for the Hungry?
Plant a Row for the Hungry (PAR) is a national program sponsored by The
Garden Writers Association that encourages garden communities and individuals
to donate fresh vegetables, fruit, and herbs to people in need. Alaska Mill and Feed
is Plant A Row partner, distributing your product to local food pantries, shelters, and
other hunger relief organization.
Just harvest and deliver produce to our drop off location and we will distribute it to the local pantries and shelters in need.
Drop off Location:
Alaska Mill & Feed
1501 E 1st Avenue
Anchorage, AK 99507
Important Safety Guidelines:
We cannot accept produce grown with animal manure not composted to USDA Organic standards or sprayed with pesticides within two weeks of harvest.
Guidelines for Handling Fresh Fruits and Vegetables:
Please keep in mind this fabulous produce is going out to individuals and organizations for quick consumption; for this reason we ask that you follow the guidelines below.
• Please visually inspect produce for dirt and bugs before donating.
• Please wash or brush away any visible dirt.
• Pick early in the day for best quality.
• After harvest move produce quickly into shade and keep cool. (Tomatoes do not need refrigeration.)
• For delicate produce like tomatoes and berries, avoid deep containers; the weight on top damages the
• Deliver soon after harvest to retain quality.
Obesity continues to be a serious health concern in Alaska. According to the State of Alaska Obesity and Prevention Control Program, in 2011, 65% of adults were overweight or obese with a high rate of child and young adult obesity. Produce from your garden will be putting healthy food within reach for those who may not afford healthy fresh vegetables.
Food Bank of Alaska:
Since 1979, the Food Bank of Alaska have been securing donated food for nonprofit agencies to distribute to hungry Alaskans. This summer, they have partnered up with Alaska Mill and Feed and Plant A Row For The Hungry program to provide Alaskans with fresh vegetables grown locally in communities around Anchorage. We hope we can make a difference one garden at a time.
“Feeding the hungry, and sheltering those in need since 1979” Serving breakfast and lunch every day isn’t the only service Beans provides, they also provide direct assistance and referral for clients seeking employment, transportation, housing, medical, legal, alcohol or drug rehabilitation and educational opportunities. We hope to make a difference by partnering up with Alaska Mill and Feed and Plant A Row For The Hungry program.
