About Us

<code>America's Grow-a-Row is a not-for-profit organization that grows and gleans fresh, healthy fruits and vegetables that are donated for free to food pantries, soup kitchens, crisis centers, and food banks throughout the state of New Jersey. Begun in 2002 through the efforts of a single volunteer, America's Grow-a-Row today has become New Jersey's leading service organization dedicated to growing, gleaning, and donating fresh healthy produce to those in need throughout the state. At America’s Grow-a-Row we not only provide much-needed fresh produce we provide a hands-on educational experience for all generations about agriculture, farming, hunger, and healthy eating. <br />America's Grow-a-Row's mission is to positively impact as many lives as possible through a volunteer effort of planting, picking, rescuing, and delivering free fresh produce. At America's Grow-a-Row, we:<br />• Provide fresh produce to those in need<br />• Educate people of all generations about hunger and ways to help<br />• Introduce our youth to farming and healthy eating<br />• Cultivate tomorrow's leaders to give back<br />• Contribute to the sustainability of agriculture</code>
