Organization Information

Mission Statement

To feed people experiencing hunger with surplus nutritious produce, we connect farmers, produce packing facilities, transportation providers and food banks; we develop and share innovative hunger relief solutions; and we engage the public in hunger relief.

Description

Harvest Against Hunger connects farmers, truckers, volunteers and foodbanks in Western Washington to reduce hunger and food waste. Our Harvest VISTA Program allows us to support this work at a national scale. An incubator and catalyst, the Harvest VISTA Program utilizes a team of AmeriCorps VISTA embedded in local food system organizations across the county to serve marginalized and underserved communities. While serving at their host sites, Harvest VISTA members build and strengthen capacity for gleaning and produce recovery, as well as for local food systems.

The produce recovery and gleaning programs focus on increasing access to local, fresh produce at the farm level, from urban fruit tree share programs in Salt Lake City to independent farm partnerships in Boston. The food system programs improve on existing models and create new ones, such as a grocery delivery program in Atlanta developed in the wake of COVID-19.
