Good Cheer Produce Assistant Summer Associate
The Good Cheer Food Bank’s gleaning program engages volunteers to harvest and deliver excess produce from backyard fruit trees, the Bayview Farmers Market, and the Organic Farm School, for distribution to Whidbey Island’s hungry populations. This VISTA opportunity is a project of Harvest Against Hunger, which connects local growers, food banks and volunteers to secure fresh produce for distribution to thousands of people throughout Washington State. The Harvest VISTA program finds innovative ways to decrease waste of fresh fruits and vegetables and increase the availability of nutritious produce for food bank clients. The VISTA Summer Associate (SA) program will work in an intensive level of summer service for 10 weeks.
