MORRISVILLE — Salvation Farms Executive Director Theresa Snow was selected to serve as a founding board member to the National Association of Gleaning Organizations.
The Association aims to build the capacity of organizations recovering fresh fruits and vegetables from farms, gardens and backyards across North America. By engaging communities to harvest surplus produce, vulnerable populations are provided with increased access to wholesome foods.
Snow founded Salvation Farms more than 15 years ago, has advised and collaborated with nearly all Vermont-based gleaning efforts, established the Vermont Gleaning Collective, and has provided technical assistance to gleaners across the nation. In 2018, she received the Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility’s Young Changemaker Award.
