Make a Difference While Home! Read for Seeds to Fight Hunger


Calling all kids (and kids at heart)! Join Gaining Ground’s virtual farm team by reading and collecting pledges for all the pages you read. The money you raise will help us buy seeds to grow vegetables that we donate to food pantries and meal programs, feeding families in need of healthy food.



It’s easy to join!

  1. Download the reading log and pledge form.
  2. Ask friends and family to make a pledge for each page you read.
  3. Read, read, read!
  4. At the end of your challenge, contact your pledgers with the total number of pages you read.
  5. Ask your pledgers to a) donate online or b) send us a check with “Read for Seeds” in the memo line:
