We are excited to partner with St. John’s Food Share, formerly known as Golden Harvesters. They have been running a 100% Volunteer organization that feeds people in need since 1988 are preparing to grow with the increasing need for access to healthy food. Our fundraising will help with some of costs of growth including expansion of the storefront.
Gleaning is gathering food that may remain after a farm field has been harvested. It can also mean collecting food from backyard apple trees, and abundant home gardens. The group has evolved into a full food share and continues to grow partnerships with businesses who donate food that would otherwise go to waste.
St. Johns Food Share’s model is simple. Members pay $30 per month, give some time each month, and shop twice a week. Our healthy food is donated, and our members select their own groceries just like a regular store.
This Saturday, June 4th is their grand re-opening and member drive!
