Kitsap Harvest Gleaning Coordinator Summer Associate VISTA
 
 
 
Kitsap Harvest’s mission is to increase fresh food through broad community interactions in Kitsap County. The Kitsap Harvest Gleaning Coordinator Summer VISTA will assist in training volunteers for the collection and distribution of produce that is farmer grown, community grown, or gleaned from Farmers Markets or the urban area. They will also assist in building a consistent foundation for food distribution for local partnering organizations and direct service sites that serve low income/ low access 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.
