Join us in connecting local farmers, community volunteers and those struggling with hunger to create a more food-secure environment. Farm to Families volunteers will support local producers by helping care for a wide variety of crops and other plants. In return, Second Harvest partner farms donate a portion of the bounty to people who need fresh, healthy food.

Projects vary and may include: weeding, mulching, composting, harvesting, or gleaning. Volunteers will receive specific task assignments at the beginning of each shift. Green thumbs not required! We’ll teach you everything you need to know.
