GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) — The Green Bay Packers and UW Extension Brown County are once again partnering together for the 3rd annual Planting for a Purpose program.

The program kicked off Friday at the Green Bay Botanical Garden and local gardeners are invited to sign up and pledge a portion of their fresh produce where it will then be given to local food pantries. 

Last year, local pantries reported that 15,000 pounds of donated produce was given to them.
