Community Harvest

Community Harvest is a regional gleaning project that envisions access to fresh, locally grown foods for all community members.

We work towards this goal by engaging volunteers in produce recovery and gardening projects:

  • Field gleans help farmers manage excess and unmarketable produce and make that gleaned produce accessible to the local community through existing emergency food providers.
  • Gardening projects include seed distribution to clients at 13 food banks throughout Chelan and Douglas counties, and a local Plant A Row initiative that gives seeds to gardeners who pledge to return the crop to a local food bank, shelter, or soup kitchen.
