The nineteenth annual Share the Harvest will be Thursday, October 3, 2013!
Ongoing donations to the Farm Share Program are always welcomed and appreciated.
The annual Share the Harvest fundraiser benefits NOFA-Vermont's Farm Share Program which is a great way that limited-income Vermonters can afford to purchase CSA (community supported agriculture) shares of fresh produce from their local farmers. Donations to the Farm Share Program go into a fund which helps subsidize CSA shares to needy Vermonters. NOFA Vermont believes that all Vermonters should be able to eat local organic food, regardless of their income level, while also making sure farmers get a good wage for their hard work.
In 2011, the Farm Share Program served over 1,400 limited-income people statewide with participation from 50 Vermont farms. Demand for Farm Share Program support is significant and a waiting list for CSA share recipients has been established. The Farm Share Program is funded by individual donations and by the annual Share the Harvest fundraiser.
On Thursday, October 4th, 2012 generous restaurants, coops, and food stores statewide participated in Share the Harvest 2012 by donating a portion of their day’s sales to the Farm Share Program. NOFA-Vermont thanks these participants and all of the people who ate out or shopped at participating establishments on this date. Click on any of the participant's names below to learn more about them.
Although the Share the Harvest 2012 event date is behind us, donations to the Farm Share Program are still welcomed and are accepted year round. If you would like to contribute to the Farm Share Program, you can do so online (just select "Farm Share" under "Donation Type") or download this coupon to make a donation.
