The Great Veggie Grow-Off is a county-wide friendly competition among private and community gardeners to see which community can grow/donate the most produce to their local food bank. The above picture is just to show how the competition is growing for The Hunger Stop. We will update it monthly; stay tuned.

This is the 9th year for this competition. Anyone who has fresh extra produce is encouraged to consider donating it to their food bank – our clients love the addition of healthy, fresh foods for their families and seldom have the space for their own gardens.

Whichever town/food bank brings home the virtual trophy, it is the families we serve that win. Thank you.
