Offered by Brighton Shares the Harvest
Gardens in Brighton are starting to produce some beautiful and bountiful food. If you can spare some of the fresh produce from your garden or fruit trees, clients of our local food pantries would love to receive some of it. Brighton Shares The Harvest works with local gardeners and community food pantries to make it easy for you to donate your extra produce to people who need help putting some fresh, healthy food on their tables. Visit our website, www.BrightonSharesTheHarvest.org, click on Donate Produce to see the times and places where you can drop off fresh food.
Food Pantry clients frequently receive boxed or canned processed foods. During the harvest months, our donations of fresh produce, such as tomatoes, beans, squash, and tree fruits make a significant difference in their diets, providing them with healthy, nutritious, natural foods. Even if you have just a little extra to donate, it all adds up. If you’re not a gardener, consider supporting one of our many local farms and farm stands to purchase some of their fresh produce to donate. Food pantry clients tell us they are thrilled to receive fresh, wholesome fruits and vegetables.
Brighton Shares The Harvest is a local, volunteer-powered Nonprofit that provides fruit trees, classes, garden space, seeds, and seedlings to help Brighton area residents put more fresh produce on more tables in Brighton.
