Gleaning Summer Associate VISTA - Thurston County Food Bank
The Thurston County Food Bank’s (TCFB) mission is to eliminate hunger in Thurston County. The Food Bank is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors made up of community leaders. Their service areas include the urban core and growth areas around Lacey, Olympia and Tumwater. TCFB conducts a number of efforts related to fresh produce and healthy eating. This AmeriCorps 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.
