This increase is thanks to the generosity of local farms and food purveyors like Community Harvest Project, Land's Sake Farms, Lovin' Spoonfuls, The Food Project, Farmer Dave's, and others. Through these partnerships, we receive food that remains unsold or left in the fields, that would otherwise go to waste. Our talented kitchen staff puts the donated produce to good use, creating nutritious food for our clients.
