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 reach the half-million pound mark of our million pound total goal.
