Volunteers got their hands dirty this afternoon as the non-profit group "Rent Party" began planting this season's batch of crops. This is the group's sixth year planting food that will eventually be given to local food pantries. The group also holds fundraisers to help fight hunger in their community.

Program organizer Chris Dickson says the group grows over 1,000 pounds of food every year, with hundreds of volunteers helping out.

The group donates to local food pantries in the South Orange/Maplewood area on a weekly basis, and they are looking to expand to help out kosher food pantries as well.
