Volunteer at Grow-a-Row

Help us harvest crops from July to November! We grow over 20 nutrient-rich varieties, including cucumbers, zucchini, eggplant, corn, peppers, turnips, potatoes, and cabbage. Each event ends with a tally of your impact—number of pounds harvested, and number of people fed which is always inspiring. Volunteer solo or with a group of 5-300. Use the buttons below to sign up.

WE’RE CHANGING THE FACE OF HUNGER

Grow-A-Row is Unique.

America’s Grow-A-Row is taking a revolutionary approach to solving hunger by treating the need along with the entire wellbeing of people suffering from hunger. We refuse to let poverty be a barrier to accessing healthy food, and have found unique, community-centered methods for people facing food insecurity to go from surviving to thriving.

Sustainable
Farming

We use sustainable farming methods to make the most of our farmland, utilizing volunteers to help create a self-sustaining ecosystem for long term success.

Fresh Produce Distribution

It’s’ not enough to grow the food: half the battle is getting it there. We use an advanced distribution setup in order to distribute the freshest produce to 22 states.

Reducing 
Food Waste

30%-40% of the nation’s food supply goes to waste. Discover how we glean—the act of collecting produce that would otherwise be wasted—both on and off the farm.

Educating & Inspiring

From childhood through adulthood, we are educating Americans from all walks of life about the importance of nutrition, the prevalence of hunger, and what they can do to make a difference.
