There is plenty of good food out there not being used, and there are people in our own back yard who need this food. The goal of the Slow Harvest Gleaning Project is to create a network that will move food along—from field to fork—in a not-so-traditional way. We are partnering with Food for Thought in Forestville and the Food Pantry in Healdsburg to bring them gleaned produce from west county farms and gardens every week. In addition, we network those who want to help with local organizations that need food. Slow Harvest also sponsors regular cooking and canning sessions and donates the canned products to food banks.
- Got food? We’ll make sure it goes to someone who will use it.
- Need food? There are plenty of programs in the county that bring food to people who need it for various reasons. We can help relieve the burden of demand on these non-profit organizations.
- Got time? We’ll put it to good use, even if it’s only an hour or two—picking, transporting, and delivering the goods!
