Produce to the People (PttP) is a backyard harvest project that collects excess
produce from residential fruit trees and gardens in San Francisco. The produce
is given to local organizations that redistribute free food to low-income
families and individuals, including The Free Farm Stand. We are in the process
of initiating an employment program for high school students, harvesting
produce on bicycles, working at food distribution sites, and learning about
local food systems, environmental stewardship, and community organizing.
PttP serves the community on many levels, by offering a free service that
utilizes fresh, healthy food that would otherwise go to waste, by aiding in our
local food security through the distribution of produce to our neighbors and
friends who may not always have access to it, and by creating youth employment
and environmental education.
