The Hunger Coalition needs help picking excess fruit in August.
The Hunger Coalition needs volunteers to gather the excess fruit from trees and orchards from Ketchum to Bellevue this August.
With one third of all food worldwide wasted, The Hunger Coalition is ready to do their part. “There are great strides being taken to reduce food waste in the valley, and our Food Rescue program is a huge part of it,” said Naomi Spence, Associate Director at The Hunger Coalition.
“Many generous locals are offering their excess fruit to us, because they can’t keep up with the volume,” said Rachel Shinn, Volunteer Manager at The Hunger Coalition. “We need help gathering it, for our three weekly food distributions to locals in need, before it goes to waste,” added Rachel. Please contact Rachel Shinn at the Hunger Coalition at 208-788-0121 for more information.
The Hunger Coalition strives to end hunger in our community by providing wholesome food to those in need and by promoting solutions to the underlying causes of hunger through collaboration, education and advocacy. For more information, visit www.thehungercoalition.org or call 788-0121.
