Harvest Against Hunger (HAH)
Harvest Against Hunger in northeast Washington is the collaborative effort of Rotary First Harvest, Providence NEW Hunger Coalition, Americorps VISTA, food pantries, and growers. This program utilizes local resources in a produce recovery model that builds partnerships between food pantries and farmers.
As part of a 3-year project, an AmeriCorps VISTA member (known as a Harvest VISTA) will live and work in northeast Washington to engage the community with HAH initiatives (Farm to Food Pantry, Plant-a-Row, gleaning, and Grower’s Roundtable) that support local hunger relief organizations. Through this effort, these volunteers are building sustainable and scalable programs that support local growers while simultaneously improving access to healthier food choices for hungry families.
