“When I was hungry, you fed me.” ~ JesusJesus said, “When I was hungry you fed me.”

We are acting to end hunger in the Pacific Northwest by growing fresh produce for area food banks.

With your help, we aim to raise a million pounds of nutritious fresh produce for area food banks by 2021.

To date we have delivered to food banks: 365,716 pounds—valued at over half a million dollars. Our goal for 2016 is 200,000 pounds.
