Why help out?

Because food insecurity impacts over 15,000 people in our region cannot afford enough good food. This puts people at higher risk of experiencing chronic diseases that are related to malnutrition such as stroke, heart disease, diabetes, anxiety, and depression.

It takes a community to feed a community. Each year, hundreds of volunteers help harvest thousands of pounds fresh food for community members in need.

You can make a difference! Come out to the farm, enjoy the beautiful outdoors, make new friends, and make our community a better place for everyone!

What to expect at a Community Harvest Day

🥕 Each event is 4 hours long. This is enough time to harvest lots of food for community members in need, take some well-deserved breaks, make some new friends and enjoy the day in a beautiful farm setting!
