"Our adventure with HFR began three years ago.....

We love HFR! We support HFR because of the huge impact it has on the social and environmental sustainability of teton county. And, not to be overlooked, the people are fantastic. Being a volunteer is consistently rewarding. Thank you for your vision and for all of the hard work and long hours you put into making the vision a reality. It is truly incredible how much food is diverted from our waste stream through the combined efforts of volunteers and staff.
