Our mission is simple: to connect donated fresh, locally grown and nutritious produce from farmers in the region with neighbors in need. We work efficiently and effectively to get the food to where it’s needed the most. We glean in the fields and help with the harvest. And we educate with a variety of printed nutrition information and recipe handouts at our free farmers markets located in many of our social service sites to encourage the recipients, many of them families and senior citizens, to incorporate this healthy food into their daily diets.
