Food Distribution Report

The Potato and Produce Project was established in 1983 and salvages and distributes about 10 million pounds of potatoes and other fresh fruits and vegetables each year. The Gleaning Network is active in many states and saves and distributes another 15-20 million pounds per year.

We operate in all the 48 contiguous states and the District of Columbia. Since its inception, we have distributed food through our Potato and Produce Project and Gleaning Network into these states in the amounts shown here.
