What is Share the Harvest?
With the Granville Farmer's Market taking place every summer just outside of our door, the mission committee of our church saw a possible service opportunity! Farmers complained of any unsold produce at the end of the market day going to waste and just going back into their compost bin, and our mission committee thought this would be a great chance to share local, healthy, fresh, produce with our mission partners in our neighborhood.
Each Saturday morning during the months of June through October, volunteers from First Presbyterian Church of Granville collect unsold fresh produce and other food items from the Granville Farmers Markets and distribute them to the Salvation Army and the Y.E.S. Club.
