Sow a Row for Hunger

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. Philabundance asks local and community gardeners to grow extra fuits and vegetables or collect any surplus produce from their gardens to donate towards the fight against hunger. Schools, churches and other organizations dedicate gardens to Share the Harvest, so they can donate all the produce.

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. Share the Harvest is a great way for neighbors to help the increasing number of families experiencing financial challenges.

Fruits and vegetables collected at Share the Harvest drop-off locations are distributed to through Philabundance’s network of member agencies in the Delaware Valley who put produce into the hands of people who need it most. A portion of the produce is utilized in Philabundance’s Community Kitchen (PCK) program, which trains low-income adults for jobs in the food-service industry. The students prepare meals, which is provided to children and families in emergency shelters in Philadelphia.

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

Don’t forget the fruits & veggies and bring your excess every Saturday morning

from July 17 through September 25, from 10 a.m. to noon, drop-off tables are set up at select locations.
