Harvest Against Hunger


HAH StickerHarvest Against Hunger has been named “one of the most effective AmeriCorps programs in the nation” – and with good reason. HAH is a collaborative program that places AmeriCorps*VISTA members (known as Harvest VISTA) in communities around Washington to develop gleaning and produce recovery programs to support local hunger relief groups.

Harvest VISTA are engaging local communities in myriad produce recovery models – each specifically built to match local resources and opportunities. Over the past five years that Harvest Against Hunger has been active, more than three million pounds of fresh, healthy produce has been recovered by 11,000 volunteers. And that’s just the beginning: Harvest VISTA build programs that are sustainable and scalable. The positive impact of these programs will benefit for years to come.
