What is Fresh Food Connect?

Fresh Food Connect enables home and community gardeners to donate a portion of their fresh grown produce to support local hunger relief efforts. Operation Food Search and Urban Harvest STL are joining over forty nonprofits across the country to use the app to create a healthier, more equitable and resilient food system by establishing a market for homegrown food in the fight against hunger.
