Gleaning and Farm-to-Food Bank
One of Oxbow’s goals has always been to grow our impact and expand our reach to demographics beyond the educated and upper-income communities who are the traditional supporters of local, organic farms.
Oxbow has had a strong partnership with Hopelink and Rotary Harvest since 2012, when we began working together to develop a regional gleaning program to strengthen the farm-to-food bank connection in the Snoqualmie Valley. Over the past four seasons, we have donated over 25,000 pounds of produce to Hopelink and hosted over 80 gleaning events.
Regular volunteer gleaning parties are every Tuesday at 1:00 p.m. See our volunteer page for more details.
