Donate — Grow a Row for Your Neighbors
Buried in zucchini or covered with tomatoes? We would love to have your excess produce and we can even pick it up! Each of the families that receive weekly food in the pantry count on fresh produce to help extend their grocery budget and to prepare healthy meals. To learn more about donating from your garden, please contact Linda Patterson at 703-339-5161, ext. 140 or Linda@LortonAction.org.
