We fight food insecurity in our community by helping backyard and community growers to grow more and collecting this extra produce to share with those in need.
Here are some of the ways you can help:
Start seeds/Donate seedlings
Start plants to share with growers. We’ll provide the seeds, you get them started! The plants you cultivate will be distributed to gardeners around the county who will in turn donate the produce to food assistance providers through HarvestShare.
Plant an extra row in your garden and share the surplus produce with those in need.
Host a collection site
Organize a drop-off site for your neighborhood or community garden. Identify neighbors or friends that have backyard gardens and combine donations or coordinate growers in your garden club or community garden. Not a gardener? No problem! We accept fresh store-bought produce as well. Select a time and date to pool harvests or purchases and deliver your bounty to a designated food assistance provider near you. We can also pair you with a volunteer to handle the driving.
Deliver produce to food assistance providers
Want to make great connections in your community? Become a HarvestShare driver and deliver produce from collection sites to nearby food assistance providers.
Media & Outreach
Help us get the word out by posting on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts, updating our blog and promoting community engagement.
Collaborate with team members to generate new ideas, improve existing processes, and support our mission.
HarvestShare welcomes donations to our programs. Please note that while HarvestShare is a not-for-profit initiative, it is not a registered 501-c3 organization so monetary donations are not tax-deductible.
