Who Wins

  • Veggie Volunteers serve their community, learn about agriculture with a hands-on approach, meet new people, make new friends, have fun outdoors and earn credit toward club badges and community service requirements.
  • Recipients and the organizations receive the farm-fresh vegetables free of charge, they can redirect scarce funds to other needs. Most importantly, low-income people have received locally grown, farm fresh vegetables that they may not have had access to otherwise.
