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: one half-million pounds of produce—valued at three-quarters of a million dollars.
