Impressed with their limited resources, but exceptional outcomes, ERG wanted to partner by helping fund the process of gleaning farmers markets, businesses, farms their unwanted produce. This food is then delivered to the schools and charities throughout Santa Barbara County. This effort helps feed the needy and offers nutrional, organic food for our school age children.
SYV Fruit & Vegetable Rescue redirects or "gleans" local produce from farms, farmers markets, home gardens, and orchards. This produce is then delivered and to charitable organizations and school lunch programs in Santa Barbara, Santa Ynez and Santa Maria. All at no charge. This helps these groups stretch their food budgets as well as providing the food they serve that is healthier and tastes better.
