When staff at the Napa Farmers Market asked CanDo to help rescue produce that might otherwise go to waste, we eagerly accepted. At every Saturday Farmers Market, you’ll find our volunteers in bright yellow CanDo safety vests collecting donations from the Market’s generous vendors.
We partner with other local NPOs and the CANV Food Bank to quickly get this delicious fresh produce to food distribution points throughout the county where it will help ease food insecurity., What better way to spend two hours on a Saturday?
