Kitsap Harvest Grow-A-Row

Kitsap Harvest gleans produce from around Kitsap County and distributes it directly to community members facing hunger and food insecurity with the help of its volunteers. They are combating hunger and food waste by picking fruit trees, collecting produce donations from home gardeners and community gardens and delivering the food directly to partnering organizations including senior centers, recovery centers and homeless youth and veteran services.


If you have produce you'd like to donate, there are donation stations at Bremerton Community Farmers Market, Port Orchard Farmers Market and Kitsap Community Food Co-op. Sign up for their newsletter and stay up to date on all things Kitsap Harvest! Email info@kitsapharvest.org for questions.


 



Market Tokens Are Money!

You may have a goldmine just laying around your house! Did you know there are many market tokens circulating in our community and no one is using this valuable resource? Don't miss out...check your glove box, your junk drawer or the bottom of your purse. Tokens don't earn you interest or increase in value if you save them, so dig them out and bring them to the market. What will you buy if you find some at your house?
