For almost a year, Orange County Produce in Irvine, Calif., has been growing cabbage, watermelon, zucchini and some celery for the nearby Second Harvest Food Bank on a contract basis in much the same way they would for a processor or a retailer.

“It’s the same concept,” said A.G. Kawamura, who is a partner in the growing-shipping operation, along with his brother, Matt. “In fact, we signed a standard grower contract that is very similar to the one we have with a processor.”
