Two of our flagship programs are Grow & Give; a fresh produce donation program and Fresh Harvest Kits; ready-to-make meal-kits with fresh produce paired with pantry staples, local spices and a recipe card.
Grow & Give partners with local farmers, ranchers and home gardeners to annually collect more than 15,000 pounds of fresh produce for the regional food bank distribution network. In order to collect these donations, HDFFA coordinates on-farm harvests with a team of volunteers and transports the produce to NeighborImpact who then redistributes the produce throughout the 50+ regional food banks in Central Oregon. The requested gas cards will support our work by offsetting the ever increasing cost of fuel.
Fresh Harvest Kits are also distributed to 50+ regional food banks with the support of NeighborImpact. In addition, we partner directly with the Warm Springs Community Action Team to distribute these kits to the Warm Springs community. The coolers and ice packs requested will help with this distribution and will be passed along to WSCAT at the end of our program season.
The floor lamp requested is needed for our office. Thank you for your consideration and for supporting our work!
Below is the shopping list you will receive along with your goodies on the night of the event – 6pm on July 23rd – we look forward to seeing you soon!
