At Willing Hands we strive for an Upper Valley where everyone has affordable access to the foods that make up a healthy diet.
Willing Hands’ mission is to recover food in order to reduce waste, improve health, and provide reliable access to nutritious food for our neighbors in need.
Willing Hands distributes free, wholesome food to our neighbors in need. We pick up donated food, primarily fruits and vegetables, that might otherwise go to waste. We deliver this food to local human service organizations and collaborate with them to provide nutritional education.
We are a non-profit, charitable organization operating throughout the Upper Valley region of Vermont and New Hampshire.
