We are pleased to invite you to learn more about Rolling Harvest Food Rescue, the 501(c)3 tax-exempt nonprofit organization. Their mission is simple: to connect donated fresh, locally grown and nutritious produce from farmers in the region with neighbors in need. Rolling Harvest Food Rescue works efficiently and effectively to get the food to where it’s needed the most. Their volunteers glean in the fields and help with the harvest. And they educate with a variety of printed nutrition information and recipe handouts at our free farmers markets located in many of our social service sites to encourage the recipients, many of them families and senior citizens, to incorporate this healthy food into their daily diets.
