Share the Harvest 2012

July 7 through September 22, 2012

Gardeners! Share the Harvest is back! Philabundance is asking local and community gardeners to grow extra fruits and vegetables to later donate towards the fight against hunger. Schools, churches and other organizations are encouraged to dedicate gardens to Share the Harvest.

Share the Harvest is a program based on the “victory gardens” concept, from World War II. Home gardeners grow extra vegetables and donate them to Philabundance.

Donations from local gardens increase the supply of fresh vegetables to those in need of these essential sources of good nutrition. Unfortunately, fruits and vegetables are the first things cut from the grocery list when money is tight.

Enjoy the feeling of helping others while you enjoy growing your garden.

Don’t forget to bring your excess fruits and veggies every Saturday morning from July 7th through September 22rd. From 10 a.m. to noon, drop-off tables are set up at select locations listed below.

All Share the Harvest drop-off sites will be closed on Saturday, September 1st in observance of Labor Day.
