1 in 10 People in Massachusetts lives with food insecurity.
Up to 20% of the food grown on farms is never harvested.
We rescue fresh food from farms and get it to people who need it.
Pure and simple.
Changing environment & market conditions make farming unpredictable. Farmers plant extra to ensure they will have enough produce to sell. When crops flourish, farmers can't always harvest & sell all of the food. To reduce hunger and food waste, we mobilize volunteers to harvest high-quality fruits and vegetables donated from local farms. We distribute the food to dozens of area food banks, meal programs, & low-income markets.
