To kick off the summer planting season, we are partnering with the local business community to support our programs. Throughout the month of May, over 30 participating stores will be collecting donations to “Plant a Seed this Spring” at Dig In’s gardens. All month long, patrons can add a dollar to purchases, place extra change in the dedicated donation jars, or scan a QR code to donate directly to Dig In’s efforts growing food this year.

Look for these jars at participating stores throughout the month of May!

Participating stores include:

Always Something New

Webb Automotive

Ironwood Arts Massage Therapy

Smith’s Barbershop

Heritage Tire

Styles Automotive

and more….

By shopping local and sharing what we have, Yancey County residents can join together this May to ensure that everyone has access to sufficient nutritious food to eat in the months to come.
