Become a Volunteer
Get outside, meet your neighbors, reduce wasted food, and learn how local food is grown all while helping everyone in the community have access to healthy, fresh local food.
1 million pounds of produce in Washington County goes uneaten each season.
Help CHCV recover some of that food that is not able to be sold,
but is still fresh and nutritious to eat.
Help deliver the produce we recover to area organizations - food shelves, senior meal sites - feeding our neighbors.
Help track all the pounds of healthy fresh local food that local farms donate.
Work with us to harvest from local farm fields, pick up after farmers markets produce that is not able to be sold, etc.
Clean & Sort
Visit with other volunteers and help get produce ready to deliver. No lifting, bending, standing or walking required.
Outreach & Education
Hang posters, talk to others about our work out in the community.
