Farmstand “NOURISHING OUR COMMUNITY . . . “
Project SHARE’s Farmstand is located at 123 Lincoln Street (Pitt & Lincoln) within easy walking distance for many SHARE recipients. Here a team of dedicated neighbors and recipients hand out fresh produce, perishable products, and bread two to three days a week.
The Farmstand is a supplement to our monthly food Distributions so recipients can get fresh nutritious food as needed. The Farmstand is open to anyone in the community who is in need.
View or Download the 2018 Farmstand/Distribution Calendar with current Farmstand hours and days of operation.
