Free Seeds for those in need


Have you ever found yourself in need of groceries for your family? How about currently struggling to make ends meet?

I found a program that will send vegetable seeds to families who wish the start a garden to help put food on the table. Even if you are not in need, they are wishing for donations as well to help keep this program going. No donation is too small and anything is appreciated.

Dinner Garden.org is dedicated to helping others.

The following has been taken directly from the website solely for the purpose of sharing the program with others.
