Solar Food Dehydrator – work with The Hunger Coalition to build one of these cost-effective dehydrators. This tool will help us preserve food from several sources: donated grocery fruits and vegetables throughout the year; gleaned fruit from neighborhood trees in September and October; and vegetables from our food production sites all season long.

This solar food dehydrator will help us ‘Build Community Through Food’, by providing a group activity platform to bring people together, and in sharing the preserved food through a variety of our programs. The programs include: food distributions at our warehouse, Volunteer for Veggies sessions, snack packs for all school children in Blaine County, etc.
