Community Harvest of Central Vermont

Help everyone eat local...glean!

Become a Volunteer

Get outside, meet your neighbors, reduce wasted food, and learn how local food is grown all while helping everyone in the community have access to healthy, fresh local food.  

1 million pounds of produce in Washington County goes uneaten each season.  

Help CHCV recover some of that food that is not able to be sold,

but is still fresh and nutritious to eat.

Clean & Sort  

Visit with other volunteers and help get produce ready to deliver.  No lifting, bending, standing or walking required.

Outreach & Education

Hang posters, talk to others about our work out in the community. 

In case you are wondering

The registration link takes you to the Vermont Gleaning Collective's site.  As a member of the Vermont Gleaning Collective CHCV registers all our volunteers through the VGC site. To glean with CHCV choose Washington County as the county you want to volunteer in.   Or pick other counties and other VGC member organizations around VT will contact you about opportunities to get involved.

Volunteering for Community Harvest makes me feel good about myself, Vermont, and our community.… I am proud to know that my efforts help feed our seniors and others less fortunate.…This organization is a symbol of why I moved to and love living in Vermont.
