APRIL EVENTS

PLANT A ROW

It's as simple as bringing your extra harvest to Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes. Plant a few buckets of carrots, line a flowerbed with cilantro, pick an extra basket of strawberries when you go picking - all of these things make a big difference. For more information, visit: http://kzoolf.org/plant-a-row/.

Join KLF staff and volunteers at Bronson Park at 1:30 p.m. for this walk to raise awareness about local and global hunger.

There's no cost to participate and the entire family is welcome. For more information, visit: http://kalamazoocropwalk.org/
