How you help

In 2017, with the help of volunteers we gleaned over 635,000 pounds of 60 crop types from 50 farms in eastern Massachusetts. We distributed these nutritious fruits and vegetables to our partner hunger relief agencies that serve our food-insecure neighbors.

About us

Since 2004, we have organized groups of volunteers to harvest surplus crops from local farms. We organize volunteer trips to local farms to harvest high-quality fruits and vegetables that would otherwise go to waste. We distribute the nutritious produce to agencies serving families facing food insecurity. Together, we can build a sustainable supply chain of healthy produce from local farms to people in need.
