Hope’s Harvest RI is the first comprehensive, professionally managed, statewide farm-based food rescue organization in Rhode Island. It is fiscally sponsored by Farm Fresh Rhode Island. Hope’s Harvest mobilizes volunteers to collect surplus food from local farms, which it distributes to local hunger relief agencies. In addition to connecting communities to local food champions, the organization investigates innovative income generation opportunities to increase resiliency and sustainability for farmers and farm-based food recovery initiatives.
