A week-long series of both in-person and online programming will highlight the kickoff of the 2021 Plot Against Hunger, an initiative that has been taken over by Arlington Friends of Urban Agriculture from its longtime sponsor, the Arlington Food Assistance Center.
Plot Against Hunger gives individuals, civic groups and other organizations the opportunity to raise fresh vegetables that will be used to support food-security programs in Arlington.
Kickoff events will run March 13-20 with the backing of Virginia Cooperative Extension, Master Gardeners of Northern Virginia, Marymount University, and the Plot Against Hunger steering committee.
The 2021 theme is “This year’s theme is Feeding Our Community, One Garden at a Time.”
“Arlington Friends of Urban Agriculture is excited to continue the Plot Against Hunger gardens’ strong tradition of generosity, and is committed to supporting our local gardens and food pantries,” said Robin Broder, president of Arlington Friends of Urban Agriculture.
