In 2015, Harvest Pierce County salvaged over 50,000lbs of produce that otherwise would have gone to waste, distributing it to those experiencing hunger in Pierce County. That’s 50,000lbs of top quality food that didn’t have to use tremendous amounts of fossil fuels in order to reach those in need, because it went straight to the local community. Today, there are 80 community gardens, orchards & food forests in Pierce County - a number that continues to rise.
A donation of $200 will help to bring 3,000 pounds of local produce out of the waste stream.
A donation of $100 will cover the cost of a work party to build a community garden.
A donation of $50 helps a low-income student become a fruit tree specialist.
A donation of $25 will cover supplies for a workshop on conflict resolution to community leaders.
Though our county is abundant, this bounty will dwindle if the community only comes together for the harvest. That’s why Harvest Pierce County needs your help: we know that the more we give to the land, the more we get from it. Together, know how to care for each other, our community and this earth.
