Local Harvest

The gift of Earth with its fruits belongs to everyone. (Laudato Si 71)

During the pandemic, many of us have sought comfort in our gardens. But for some, the yields can be overwhelming. Our department, Mission and Formation, is collaborating with several nonprofits to promote the sustainable use of these resources. Volunteers will come to your home to harvest for you. Their mission is to share these healthy choices with the community and reduce food waste.

In California, we are working with villageharvest.org. There are other chapters across the nation that we can also use: Missouri, Oregon and Arizona.  Simply enter your zip code to find a location near you: www.localharvest.org.
