Grower-Shipper Foundation

Organization Mission

We raise community awareness of the positive impact agriculture makes in our lives.

The Big Idea 2024:
Ag Against Hunger Gleaning

Our project seeks to expand our volunteer-driven work. We hope to engage more volunteers to go to harvesting locations to “glean” excess produce left behind in the fields that otherwise might go to waste, and deliver that produce to local food banks.

Funding will help us reach 350 volunteers, provide up to 800 cartons of fresh produce, host 4 gleaning events in 2024 and reimburse transportation costs to food banks 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 donating it to those that really need it.
