National Foodcycle Week is an awareness program that encourages home gardeners and orchard owners to plant a row for the hungry, or dedicate space in their garden or orchard for growing fresh produce for local food banks. Our spring 2016 event will span the dates of April 20-26 and will focus on garden planning, planting, and hosting awareness events. We also encourage spring harvesters—lambs, anyone?—to donate to their local shelters.
The fall event, held on October 20-26 every year, has a harvest theme.
There are several ways that you can participate.
- commit to “grow a row” for the hungry
- commit a berry patch, tree or orchard
- offer to print and distribute awareness flyers
- host an awareness event in your town or neighborhood
Please let us know how you plan to support hunger outreach this spring!
