Population(s) Served

We bring in surplus produce from other regions and distribute the produce to our area food bank partners.

Population(s) Served

We organize groups of volunteers to harvest (glean) fresh produce that is left in the fields after harvest. Through this program, our volunteers rescue high-quality produce that would otherwise be tilled back into the soil. The produce is then distributed to the food banks in the tri-county area of Monterey, Santa Cruz & San Benito counties as well as our participating food bank partners.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our mission is to get the fresh surplus produce to our food bank partners, food assistance programs and school programs to help create hope and healthy communities.

Working closely not only with our produce partners, community but also our food bank partners to continue to grow & expand our reach as well as being sustainable.

We work tirelessly to maintain as well as establish strong relationships with our partners, volunteers & donors.

We are in dire need of a new cooler facility to house the growing demands of produce donations and food banks joining our program. We have yet to secure the space needed for our expansion.
