Share the Harvest event on Oct. 1 raises money for limited-income Vermonters to buy subsidized CSA shares

The Northeast Organic Farming Association of Vermont (NOFA-VT) announces the 21st annual Share the Harvest event, to be held at more than 52 food businesses around the state on Oct. 1. Up to 15 percent of sales on this day at participating restaurants, co-ops, and stores will be donated to NOFA-VT’s Farm Share Program, which assists limited-income Vermonters in obtaining farm fresh fruits and vegetables through subsidized CSA shares.

In 2015 there are more than 1,400 individuals receiving CSA shares from the Vermont Farm Share Program and a waiting list of others hoping to participate. When customers shop or dine at participating businesses on Oct. 1, 2015, they help NOFA-VT meet a fundraising goal of $17,000 for the Farm Share Program.
