Share the Harvest 2021

— Written By and last updated by
Share The HarvestShare the Harvest will begin its tenth (10th) year on May 24, 2021, and needs your help, now more than ever! Share the Harvest is an all-volunteer organization that collects and distributes locally grown produce to agencies in Guilford County that either prepare a meal for the hungry or have a food pantry.
The need for fresh produce in our community is growing. So how can you help?
  1. Donate produce from your garden or plant an extra row just for Share the Harvest;
  2. Volunteer to pick up donations from collection sites in the Greater Greensboro area; and/or
  3. Volunteer to help distribute the produce to our partner agencies. Distribution takes place at the warehouse of the Interactive Resource Center (407 E Washington St, Greensboro, NC 27401).
Share the Harvest began in 2011 and has grown each year to reach more in our community. We work closely with community gardeners, church gardens, individual gardeners, and N.C. A&T State University Farm. Our success is due to the kindness, generosity, and dedication of our agencies and growers. In 2020, gardeners donated more than 11,000 lbs of fresh produce!
Collection and distribution will start on May 24 and continue through September 30, 2021. There are a few collection sites throughout the county where gardeners can take their extra produce.
For more information and/or to volunteer, please visit Share the Harvest of Guilford County or email landersonsth20@gmail.com.
