Washington County Harvest of Hope gleans, grows, and gives food to programs that feed hungry people in our communities.
The need is great
Each week, more than 25% of our food goes to waste in the United States. Many individuals go hungry or eat low-nutrition foods that fill their stomachs but don't provide a healthy diet.
In Washington County alone, 16.4% of our population and 21.4% of our children live in poverty. Help feed the hungry in our communities by joining hands with Harvest of Hope!
