Harvest Against Hunger SA Spokane Edible Tree Project
 
 
 
The Spokane Edible Tree Project (SETP) empowers our neighbors to share in the harvest and care of existing fruit & nut trees by implementing food recovery methods and cultivating a connection with the greater needs in the community. We envision a beautiful thriving urban area where the community is competent in the essentials of fruit and nut tree maintenance, is effectively preserving the bounty of these local nourishing sources and is promoting community food security. Since 2013, SETP has connected fruit tree owners, volunteers, food banks and community organizations with the goal of fighting hunger and food waste in the Spokane area. They have collected over 70,000 pounds of fruit with over 2,000 volunteer hours, and that fruit has been delivered to area food banks and meal programs to increase the healthy choices available to food insecure populations living in poverty in the Spokane region. The Summer Associate will support SETP by serving in two main capacities; as a Harvest Leader, and performing community outreach tasks to expand SETP’s capacity. Harvest Against Hunger (HAH) is a program of Rotary First Harvest that partners with CNCS to place AmeriCorps VISTAs in host sites around Washington to create and sustain gleaning and produce recovery project that increase the amounts of fresh nutritious local produce in the hunger relief system.
