WHAT WE DO 

Every Saturday year-round, Napa Valley CanDo's Food Rescue Team volunteers collect produce that might otherwise go to waste. This is donated by our generous Farmers Market vendors.

The "rescued" food goes to the Napa Food Bank and to other local entities that help ease food insecurity in Napa County. The donations are delivered by Dave Busby of Feeding It Forward.

The Napa Farmers Market is located in the City of Napa parking lot at 1100 West Street in downtown Napa (intersection of Pearl and West). The market is open from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. 

HOW IT WORKS

11:30 Meet us on West Street, a cul de sac at the west boundary of the Farmers Market next to the parking lot. The Lead Volunteer will park there with all the supplies. 

11:35 Distribute bins to participating vendors. Around this time, Dave Busby of Feeding It Forward arrives.

12:00ish We start collecting and weighing the full bins, then transfer them to Dave's refrigerated truck. 

12:30ish: We're done! Dave takes off to deliver the food to various distribution points throughout the valley: the Food Bank, the homeless shelter, farmworker housing sites, and more.

WHAT YOU NEED

We'll ask you to sign a waiver the first time you volunteer with us.

During the summer, bring a reusable water bottle and a hat. It can be hot.

Please wear shoes with closed toes.
