Share Your Harvest
Have you ever encountered a rogue zucchini plant? Or perhaps a tomato plant that produces more then you can eat?
Even once your friends and family have been fed, there are some seasons and vegetables that just keep producing. We can make sure your extra backyard bounty gets to the people in our community that need it most.
If you already cultivate a food garden we would be very happy to accept a portion of your harvest. Your donation of fresh produce will be distributed and shared with our community partners who have food programs that serve those in need. We have a drop-off system in place where you can drop-off your produce donations at specified locations on regular days of the week – this schedule is updated regularly, so please check regularly. Your contribution will help these organizations to provide healthy fresh food to their clients.
We work with food safety inspectors to ensure that the produce we share is clean, healthy and safe. You can help us by donating firm, clean and durable fruits and vegetables like: Broccoli, Cauliflower, Cabbage, Carrots, Green Beans Peas, Tomatoes, Sweet Peppers, Eggplants, Zucchini, Summer Squash, Beets, Potatoes, Winter Squash Onions, Garlic, Peaches, Apples, Pears or Plums.We encourage you to grow this food without the use of chemical pesticides or fertilizers.
If you have got fruit trees that you are unable to pick, please contact the North Shore Fruit Tree Project. They’ll be happy to pick your fruit, and share the bounty with you and the community.
(We cannot accept cut or overripe fruits or vegetables, nor can we accept fallen fruits)
