The Plant a Row For Us program is back here at The Chilliwack Salvation Army Foodbank.
The Plant a Row For Us program aims to provide those in need with fresh produce! By planting an extra row of fruit or vegetables in your garden and donating the crop to The Salvation Army Chilliwack’s free grocery store, known as The Pantry, you will be helping ensure families in our community always have access to a nutritious meal.
The Pantry provides fresh fruits and veggies, dairy, deli, baked good, frozen meat and more to over 3000 low income households per month. But as the need keeps increasing, we are consistently running out of food on a day to day basis. The Plant A Row For Us program is designed to make sure that never happens again.
Our goal is to bring in 100,000lbs of produce from the community this year.
Let’s Grow A Better Future Together

While we will accept and use any produce grown, the most useful to us are those that can be stored for longer periods of time.
Please ensure all produce is cleaned and washed before brining it to our Care and Share Centre. This will make things so much easier on our staff and volunteers who will receive it and put it into the Pantry.
Produce can be dropped off Mondays or Tuesdays between 9:30 AM and 4:00 PM at our Care and Share Centre at 45746 Yale Road, Chilliwack. Please go to the very back of the property to our Food Warehouse and there will be someone there to help you unload (there will also be signs.)
If you need a different drop off time please give us a call at 604 792 0001 so we can make sure someone is here for you.
