BACN Looking for Fruit and Veggie Donors Through “Grow a Row”

Planting fruits or vegetables can be a rewarding experience, and now there’s a way to make it even better for others.   

Benzie Area Christian Neighbors is hoping you can help them fill their food pantry with produce through their “Grow A Row” campaign. 

BACN surveyed people who rely on their food pantry, and the number one thing they wanted to see more of was fresh fruits and veggies.

Now they’re hoping community members are willing to donate a row, or more, of their fruits or vegetables to help stock the pantry.

“We accept all types of fruits and vegetables, no amount is too large, no amount is too small. Every little bit helps. We’ve had people donate everything from kale to apples,” explains BACN Operations Manager, Michelle Northrup.

Donations can be dropped off at BACN, located at 2839 Benzie Hwy in Benzonia during their regular business hours, Monday through Thursday, 10 AM to 2 PM.
