Fields to Families

Based in the Charleston, SC area, Fields to Families (F2F) believes all people deserve access to healthy, quality food options. Since 2006, F2F has worked to bridge the gap between excess produce and the community by collecting donations from local farms, markets & gardens to feed the food insecure population. The program coordinates volunteers to glean crops or potential food waste as requested per farmer. Donated fruit, vegetables & eggs are strategically delivered to food programs-- providing healthy, quality food options directly to people. The organization consists of a board of directors, a program director and a base of volunteers, along with well-established and new partnerships in the community including farmers, schools, and other local businesses.
