Fresh Harvest Kit

Fresh Harvest Kits

Fresh Harvest Kits are ready-to-make meal kits containing farm fresh vegetables, pantry staple items (such as pasta, tuna, or beans), a seasoning packet from Savory Spice, and a recipe card to create a nutritious and delicious meal on a budget. HDFFA collaborates with local farms and hunger relief agencies to offer these kits at local food pantries and community organizations.

We believe that everyone deserves good food.  We define good food as affordable, nutritious and culturally preferred food that is easily accessible and sustainably produced in Central Oregon.  We recognize that not all Central Oregonians have the same access to this food, and are committed to improving equitable access for all through this program.
