Healthy Living

What We Want To Do

  • Improve Food Security

  • Reduce Chronic Disease

  • Increase Access to Preventative Health Screenings


We envision a happier, healthier community of people working together to strengthen themselves and each other. The public health network's part in this is to share information and resources, and to work with partners in the community to build a stronger, more connected system.

Strafford County Plant-A-Row Program

One of the challenges Granite Staters are facing is food insecurity. Whether you are looking to supplement your own household, or would like to donate produce, we can all plant an extra row or container!

When you pledge to plant an extra row (or container) a garden kit will be mailed to you. We will keep in touch with our weekly Plant a Row newsletter. Here, you will find growing tips, activities, recipes and information on where to donate or access fresh produce.

Donations Accepted:
  • Fresh ProduceBy planting an extra row and donating produce you can help increase access to fresh and nutritious foods.
  • Container Gardens. Plant an extra container! The entire container can then be donated. Container gardens with tomatoes, peppers, herbs, or greens make for a great source of continuous nutrition.
  • Make a Gift. If you are unable to plant a row, you can help the community through giving a gift towards Plant a Row. 100% of the gifts are used to purchase fresh produce from local farms for food pantries in Strafford County.
