Small Potatoes Gleaning Project - HUGS Program

Reduce waste and help feed people in our community who are in need. 

Small Potatoes is seeking to form partnerships with our many Neighborhood Associations in an attempt to identify, harvest and distribute more fruit and vegetables that are going to waste around the Bellingham Area.  The idea is to find and collaborate with those who are interested in helping us in our mission to reduce food waste, build community, increase awareness about hunger and improve access to fresh fruit among low-income individuals.  For more information, please contact:
