Gleaning Farm-Fresh Food For Those in Need

Reducing Food Waste and Food Insecurity

A Project of the Foodshed Alliance

Share your surplus at LocalShare It! Basket at the Blairstown Farmers’ Market

Each week, LocalShare will have a LocalShare It! Basket at the Foodshed Alliance tent at the Blairstown Farmers’ Market. We invite market visitors to:

  • Buy a little extra each week at the market to donate to LocalShare.
  • If you have a home garden and harvest more than you and your friends can use, bring your surplus to the market and put it in the LocalShare basket.
  • If you have backyard chickens and more eggs than you can use, bring the eggs to the market and donate them to LocalShare.

At the end of the market day, LocalShare volunteers will deliver these fresh-food donations to local food pantries and soup kitchens to contribute to the health and wellness of the people in need.
