Quick Case Study

Our Core Services

Each month Northwest Harvest donates a truck full of extra produce to The Hunger Coalition. This produce is then distributed to local food banks, no small task, only possible through the dedication and resources available by Anita Sailor and Rural Resources. To date these organizations and individuals have made it possible to deliver 99,955 pounds of fresh produce to hungry families!
