Second Helpings food donors help feed 19,000 people weekly with the food rescued. Going over and above that this spring was a grant from Whole Foods to help support the Healthy Food Initiative. This program provides even more fresh produce than that rescued from local grocery stores. Second Helpings works with Dempsey Farms and each growing season an acre of land is set aside to grow fresh produce. This produce is then given out FREE OF ANY FEES to the agencies we deliver rescued food to daily. Thank you, Whole Foods…you do nourish the world. Here’s a photo of plantings ready to grow and feed our little part of the world.
