We make use of this good produce, thereby reducing waste.

HOW WE DO OUR WORK

GrnHouseICON200

PRODUCE IS DONATED

We are thankful to local growers who donate their unmarketable produce to our facility! These donated vegetables and fruits enable us to manufacture dehydrated vegetable mix and fruit snacks.

Nutritious packaged food mixes have a long shelf-life which allows us to participate in food rescue initiatives to feed those who are hungry locally, nationally, and internationally.

VOLUNTEER PRODUCTION

We Need You

We appreciate our volunteers!
Local volunteers are the lifeblood of our facility’s production. Individuals, organizations, charity groups, high schools, faith-based groups, and employee groups all work together to make a difference in the lives of those in need.

We require 30 volunteers to work Monday to Friday (ages 14 and up) to keep our production line moving. Production volunteers work 8:am -12 noon. All necessary equipment such as aprons, knives, gloves, and hairnets are supplied.

Fresh baked goods and refreshments are enjoyed daily.

PACKAGED WITH CARE

Volunteers package and seal our vegetable mix and fruit snack mix following high standards of quality care.

Once donated produce is cleaned and sorted, it goes through an extensive preparation process. This includes deep cleaning, dicing, drying, and dehydration. Lastly, mixes are carefully measured, labeled, and packaged.
