Mission: Willing Hands' mission is to recover food in order to reduce waste, improve health, and provide access to nutritious food for our neighbors in need.

A little more: Willing Hands distributes free, wholesome food to Upper Valley residents in need. Willing Hands picks up donated food, primarily fruits and vegetables, that might otherwise go to waste and delivers it to local human service organizations and collaborates with them to provide nutritional education.
