Share the Harvest started on a half acre in 2010, and now farms five acres in East Hampton. We were founded on the belief that everyone is entitled to fresh, nutritious food. To that end, we grow and donate thousands of pounds of fresh, highly nutritious vegetables and herbs to local organizations feeding hundreds of children, seniors, and disabled people in our community.
Our mission is to grow high-quality produce for donation to local food pantries and other organizations, to increase access for all to healthy products, and to raise awareness about food insecurity on the East End.
Organizations we serve include:
South Fork food pantries
Affordable housing complexes
The Retreat women's shelter
East Hampton Town Senior Citizens Nutrition Center
Working families CSAs
We employ organic methods to encourage a diverse and thriving soil ecosystem that provides a healthy environment for our crops. We focus on nutrient-rich vegetables and cold-tolerant staple crops that provide much-needed produce in early spring and late fall, when many families in our community are struggling to make ends meet. Past generous donations allowed us to build greenhouses that extend our growing season, allowing us to continue delivering produce year-round.
Fundamentally, we approach outreach from the standpoint of giving not what is left over or inferior in quality, but that which we would want to put on our own tables.
With your help, we are achieving our goal of bringing members of our community together in a common purpose to end food insecurity on the East End.
