Volunteer Day for Farm to Pantry

1 Farm to fight hunger 4 28 2020

Do good and have fun! Volunteer with us for a few hours of gleaning for Farm to Pantry!

Wednesday, October 11, 8:30-11:00 am

We are gleaning at Farm to Fight Hunger, 12340 Los Amigos Road, Healdsburg

We will meet at Farm to Fight Hunger at 8:30 am at the barn. Park near the entrance to the farm and walk up the driveway to the barn.

During the morning, we will harvest field vegetables and pack and weigh them. If you don’t want to bend over and pick, carry buckets of produce, or work in the sun, you may choose to weigh, bag, and box in the barn. There’s a job for everyone!

When we finish, the produce will be delivered to organizations that feed people in need of healthy food.

Wear work clothes and bring a water bottle, hat, and gloves. We’ll also learn a bit about this farm and its mission.

Farm to Pantry Executive Director Duskie Estes

In 2008, the nonprofit Farm to Pantry was launched to serve a need in our local community: to provide a continuous supply of fresh, healthy produce to our most vulnerable neighbors who lack access to it by cultivating a community of growers and volunteers. The mission then and now is to bring together communities to end food injustice and reverse global warming by rescuing and sharing locally-grown food with those who have been systematically marginalized. We envision a just food system in which everyone has access to healthy food that honors and nourishes our community and heals the planet through eliminating food waste.

Farm to Fight Hunger is a non-profit organization that grows, harvests and delivers fresh nutritious produce, free of charge, to those in Sonoma County in need of healthy food. Eggs layed by happy pastured hens are also donated to local food banks. We farm in an earth-friendly sustainable manner and work to improve the soil health, therefore improving the nutritional content of the food we grow, increasing the amount of carbon the soil can hold and reducing greenhouse gases. We will work to make the farm its own healthy balanced ecosystem, with habitat for both native plants and beneficial insects.

Farm to Fight Hunger is a Slow Food in Sonoma County Snail of Approval farm.
