|We ended the 2022 season with 60,600 lbs of fresh produce for our community! This total equates to more than 174,000 individual servings of food…nutritious food that would otherwise have gone to waste.
Spring is on the Way: Spring is coming quick and that means we need to start prepping for the growing season! If you grow your own crops, are affiliated with a larger commercial farm, or are interested in becoming involved with the greater AG community in the basin, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. We can point you in the right direction to help you donate your crops this growing season or volunteer with us. We will provide the hands to harvest your fruit and vegetables and will donate it to our local food banks in your name! If you are interested in being the hands that help to harvest these blessings, follow this link and input your information to get on our email list. You will receive updates on our gleaning opportunities!

Meet our New President: Please welcome Sarah MacPherson as our new President on the Board of Directors. Here is a bit about Sarah; I was born and raised in Washington State with my parents and two older brothers. I graduated from Richland High School before spending a year abroad in Germany as a Youth Exchange Student through Rotary. I then attended CBC before transferring to WSU (Go Cougs) and completing my bachelors in History with a minor in German. While in Pullman I met my now husband Andy and we moved back to Tri Cities together after graduating and we have two beautiful children. I love to be outdoors with my family and dog and love supporting this community. I just started with Fields of Grace, but have been involved with hunger relief for several years and it is a cause near and dear to my heart. We cannot wait to see how Sarah helps to move our mission forward!
Board Member Opportunities: We still have board member positions open and looking for leaders to step in. If God is calling you to be the change, this is an amazing way to make a difference in our community! This is a low commitment opportunity, that can create such a fun and positive aspect to life! If you are interested, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prayer Requests: If you or anyone is in need of a prayer team, send us an email. We send out an email with requests almost monthly!
Donations Needed: Fields of Grace is in constant need of donations to continue with operations, expand our reach, and support our volunteers. Tax-deductible donations may be made directly to Fields of Grace online or mailed to P.O. Box 1766, Richland, WA. 99352. Let’s keep this ministry going strong in 2023!
