JOIN VILLAGE HARVEST
Village Harvest is a volunteer-based gleaning program that harvests and donates the abundant fruit growing on Kaua‘i to those in need of fresh produce. We strive to bridge the gap between food waste and food insecurity by utilizing food left over from harvests on personal properties and small farms. The produce we glean is donated to food pantries and keiki programs to encourage agricultural learning, healthy eating, and to foster an appreciation for local produce.
Gleaning: to gather leftover produce after a harvest and put it to use
Join one of the gleaning teams on the island! Spend time harvesting local produce, talking story and giving back to Kaua‘i.
For Kapa‘a and North, gleaning events are held every Wednesday – contact Gray Hayton at (808) 333-6823 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you have fruit that is going to waste? Register to be a Village Harvest fruit donor. It’s as simple as calling Village Harvest when your trees are fruiting and setting up a date and time for volunteers to harvest and deliver your extra fruit. Donations are tax deductible and donors are released from all liability via The Federal Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act.
