Share the Harvest Needs You!
“Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for fresh produce in our community is growing. So how can you help?
- Donate produce from your garden or plant an extra row just for Share the Harvest;
- Volunteer to pick up donations from collection sites in the Greater Greensboro area; and/or
- Volunteer to help distribute the produce to our partner agencies.
In 2019, community and home gardeners donated more than 7,000 lbs of fresh produce to those experiencing hunger through Share the Harvest.
Share the Harvest will be starting back up with this year’s growing season and we need your help, now more than ever. We are an all-volunteer organization that exists to collect and distribute locally grown surplus produce to those who are experiencing hunger in our community through a network of local service agencies (i.e., Triad Health Project, One Step Further Community Support & Nutrition Program, St. Andrews Episcopal Church, Quaker Cupboard, Food Not Bombs, Backpack Beginnings, Church of the Holy Spirit, Cottage Grove Collaborative, and Christ United Methodist-Glenwood). Share the Harvest started in 2011 with modest beginnings and has grown year after year to reach more and more in our community. We work closely with community gardeners, church gardens, farmers, and individual gardeners. Our success is due to the kindness, generosity, and dedication of our agencies and growers.
We hope to start collection and distribution in mid-June, but the start date will depend on the public safety measures in effect in the coming months.
