Volunteer

So much of the Berkshires’ rich bounty of fruit and vegetables ends up wasted, left on the ground to spoil or in dumpsters. Our mission is to share that beautiful food bounty with people in need of food assistance.

You can volunteer your time and effort to help us harvest the fruit and vegetables when they are ready to be harvested. We’ve enlisted South County fruit tree owners and local farmers who have agreed to welcome volunteers to gather their excess fruit and vegetables for distribution to those in need.

We provide the equipment - picking poles, bags, and boxes - and you provide the labor. It’s fun and easy! You spend a few hours in the great Berkshires outdoors, perhaps with a few of your friends, and have the satisfaction of being directly involved in sharing fresh food neighbors in our community.
