The power of community

Blueberries.pngOur harvest is winding down, and it’s been quite the season! Thousands of community members have been volunteering at our North Grafton and Harvard farms. Because of you, Community Harvest Project now supplies 44% of the fresh produce received at the Worcester County Food Bank. Whether it’s starting seeds, tending the fields, pruning trees, harvesting and washing the crops, volunteers are doing it all. With your help, fresh fruits and vegetables are being donated to over 100,000 people living in Worcester Country who experience hunger and food insecurity.

This year we are on track to host over 11,000 volunteers, from pre-K to seniors, faith groups to corporate workers, people with individualized needs to seasoned farmers. It only takes one person to make a difference but when people come together at our farms, we are reminded of the power of community and how much more we can accomplish together.

Contribute to our Appeal and help us provide our volunteers important supplies such as clippers, produce baskets, apple bags and so much more. 

Thank you for your help and support.  We couldn’t do it without you!
