Farm To Pantry
2019 REX FOUNDATION GRANTEE
Farm to Pantry nourishes those who are hungry or have limited access to nutritious produce by engaging volunteer gleaners to harvest, collect and deliver excess produce. Since 2008, over 200 tons of produces have been distributed weekly to more than 30 hunger relief agencies that provide food to those in need, to low income residents in our community and directly through our Farmacy Carts. Farm to Pantry was founded on the belief that healthy food nurtures a healthy community. Farm to Pantry bridges the gap between abundance and need by gleaning, that is, harvesting produce that would otherwise go to waste at no cost to the farmer or homeowner, thereby reducing food waste and nourishing those who are affected by hunger or food insecurities.
