To increase equitable access to healthful food and strengthen communities by empowering neighbors to share in the harvest and care of city-grown produce.
Bottom Line for Portland
Last harvest season, more than 800 volunteers joined together to pick 90,000 pounds of produce that fed 18,000 low-income households. This year, PFTP is also providing 80 low-income households with a weekly share of locally grown fruit through an innovative partnership with metro-area farms and health agencies.
“I’m a PFTP junkie! I come out to a lot of these orchard harvests because it’s fun, and because I have seven people in my family and they’re hungry!” —Anne Niven
