Mission Statement

Sharing our gardens and talents to strengthen our community: Village Harvest brings together neighbors and community organizations to provide food for the hungry, preserve our agricultural heritage and skills, and promote sustainable use of urban resources.

Description

Village Harvest is a nonprofit volunteer organization in the San Francisco Bay Area which harvests fruit from backyards and small orchards, then passes it along to local food agencies to fight hunger and improve health. We also provide education on fruit tree care, harvesting, and food preservation.

Since its founding in 2001, Village Harvest volunteers have harvested a total of 2 million pounds of nutritious fresh fruit, 5 million servings benefiting hundreds of thousands of people in our community.

In 2014 volunteers harvested 207,000 lbs of nutritious fruit for community members in need.
