Grower-Shipper Foundation

Organization Mission

To promote and educate about the health, social, economic and cultural benefits of agriculture in the community.

The Big Idea 2023:
Ag Against Hunger

We provide an educational, volunteer-driven approach to gleaning excess produce left behind in the fields that might otherwise go to waste, and deliver that produce to food banks and distributors who serve those in need.

Our project seeks to expand the program. Funding will help us reach 350 volunteers, provide up to 800 cartons of fresh produce, host 4 gleaning events in 2023 and provide reimbursement for transportation costs to food banks and distributors if needed.

We would appreciate your support!

The act of gleaning gave me an opportunity to not only harvest excess produce but to make a difference by donating it to those that really need it.
