Sharing the Harvest Community Farm

FOR SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

The generosity of others is at the core of our existence. It is only through the support of thousands of volunteers and through both public and private donations that we are able to serve our community.

Sharing the Harvest Community Farm is a non-profit, volunteer-driven farm that aims to help fight hunger in our community. It was established in 2006 to reduce hunger, create volunteer stewardship and increase agricultural education.

As Sharing the Harvest approaches its eighth growing season, we are still battling hunger on the south coast. Both New Bedford and Fall River are listed among cities with the highest concentrations of hunger in Massachusetts. In these cities one child in three lives in a family unable to meet its basic food necessities.

Charged with the hunger relief mission, as well as community stewardship and agricultural education, Sharing the Harvest hosts thousands of volunteers each season working together to grow food for our neighbors. Thanks to those volunteers, in our eight years of operation Sharing the Harvest has donated more than 200,000 pounds of food, and hosted more than 10,000 volunteers!

We are now open for the 2014 season.                                                                          Please join us for our regular volunteer drop-in hours:
Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday: 9 AM - 12 PM and 2-5 PM

& Saturday: 9AM - 12PM
