Non-Profit, Helping Hands Produce is partnering with Davis Ranch in Sloughhouse California, to provide every bit of unsold fruits and vegetables to those going hungry in our local region and other counties throughout the state.


Before Helping Hands Produce, much of the surplus fruit and vegetables at Davis Ranch were tilled back into the soil. Now with the help of many community partners and amazing volunteers, Helping Hands Produce connects this much needed fresh produce with local food banks.


This 2016 season, Davis Ranch Produce is inviting volunteers to come to its farm On U-Pick days. Helping Hands Produce will have an area designated for picking produce for food banks from 8 am until 10 a.m., every Tuesday and Saturday. The harvesting season usually lasts until sometime in November.


Please join us for some volunteer harvesting. There is no need to call in advance unless you are bringing a large group (10 or more)


When arriving at the Sloughhouse produce stand, follow the signs to the U-Pick scales. At the U-Pick scales let the person working at the scales know that you are there to volunteer for the food banks. You will need to weigh in at the scales, but as a Helping Hands Volunteer, you will not need to fulfill the $25 minimum purchase required for U-Pick.


You will be directed to where you should go as a volunteer. The gleaning manager will assist you further in the designated areas.
Thank you once again for your interest in harvesting surplus produce for food banks.
