In Silicon Valley it's astounding that as many as 1 of every 5 people needs extra food, especially low income families and seniors. Through Village Harvest the community comes together to share our fruit, volunteer our time, and embrace our community spirit to make a difference for others.

Our volunteer harvests of abundant fruit from heritage orchards and backyards provide healthy food for tens of thousands of people in need every year, assistance to seniors, education for all ages, and reduces food waste for a healthier planet. Since 2001 Village Harvest has picked and donated more than 3.4 million pounds to local food banks.

Every $1 provides healthy fruit for 1 person for an entire week.
