Share the Harvest
Donate Locally-grown Produce to Families in Need
Share the Harvest is a new program allowing gardeners and farmers market shoppers to contribute locally-grown produce to Sisters’ Camelot, a reputable local organization that offers free produce and free meals to hungry Minneapolis residents through its colorful mobile food share bus.
Share the Harvest will accept your donation at the Midtown Farmers Market. Find the main market table and the “Share the Harvest” donation box. Donate produce you’ve purchased at the farmers market or produce you’ve grown at home without the use of chemicals. Sisters’ Camelot will take it from there!
Share the Harvest is a project of the Corcoran Neighborhood Organization as part of its Healthy Living in Corcoran Project, but folks from any neighborhood are welcome to participate. Healthy Living in Corcoran is supported by the Minneapolis Department of Health and Family Support with a Community Transformation Grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
