Harvest Against Hunger
Our Harvest Against Hunger program has been named “one of the most effective AmeriCorps programs in the nation” – and with good reason. HAH is a collaborative program that places AmeriCorp*VISTA members (known as Harvest VISTA) in ten communities around Washington State to develop gleaning and produce recovery programs that support local hunger relief groups.
Harvest VISTA are engaging local communities in myriad produce recovery models – each specifically built to match local resources and opportunities. Over the past four years that Harvest Against Hunger has been active, more than two million pounds of fresh, healthy produce has been recovered by 10,500 volunteers. And that’s just the beginning: Harvest VISTA build programs that are sustainable and scalable. The positive impact of these programs will benefit for years to come.
