The sixteenth annual Share the Harvest fundraiser is TODAY! It benefits NOFA-VT’s Farm Share Program. The Farm Share program helps limited-income Vermonters purchase CSA (community supported agriculture) shares of fresh produce from their local farmers.
NOFA Vermont believes that all Vermonters should be able to eat local organic food, regardless of their income level, while also making sure farmers get a good wage for their hard work. In 2010, the Farm Share Program served over 1,300 people statewide and 50 Vermont farms participated. The Farm Share Program is funded by donations and by the annual Share the Harvest fundraiser.
Participating restaurants, coops, and food stores participate in Share the Harvest by donating a portion of today’s sales to the Farm Share program. Participating Montpelier restaurants include The Black Door, Capitol Grounds, Hunger Mountain Coop, Julio’s, Kismet, Rhapsody, and Sarducci’s.
