The Clark County Food Bank exists to "Alleviate hunger and its root causes" in Clark County, Wash. Our Farming and Gleaning Program helps with that mission by increasing the amount of fresh, nutrious food we distribute through our 29 partner agencies across Clark County, localizing our emergency food supply and engaging and educating the community through volunteer opportunities.
We've been farming at 78th Street Heritage Farm since 2009, growing miles of carrots and maintaining a vegetable garden with the help of countless volunteers. Activities range from planting to weeding and harvesting, depending on the season.
The acreage is maintained by the Clark County Food Bank, Churches in Partnership, Larch Correction Center and community volunteers.
Who: You are invited to join us as often as you like. If you have a group of eight or more, please call first to assure there is enough work to be accomplished.
What: Primarily weeding through July. Major harvesting activities such as digging, topping and washing produce begin in August.
When: Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon, beginning in mid-June and continuing through the harvest in November.
If you would like to volunteer, please contact the Clark County Food Bank Volunteer Coordinator at (360) 693-0939 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
