COVID-19 Changes

Effective Monday March 16, all harvests are canceled through April 7 in support of the extraordinary request by Bay Area counties for residents to "shelter in place" at home to reduce the spread of coronavirus / COVID-19. Under the public health order Village Harvest is eligible to continue operating, and depending on food supply at pantries and food banks we may resume limited orchard, but not home, harvests after April 7.

Stay healthy, keep others safe, and let's all find ways to make lemonade in this challenging time.

Support and Funding

Village Harvest is funded through private donations and grants, principally from our community of tree owners, volunteers, and the companies they work for.  As an IRS 501(c)(3) charitable organization, our annual Tax Information Forms 990-EZ are public records, and anyone can examine where the money comes from and goes to (see Guidestar). 

As a volunteer powered organization we're able to make dollars go a long way. Funds pay for transportation, equipment, insurance, and a small organizing staff. 

Major Grant Supporters

In 2017 and 2018 our harvests and community service are supported by grants from the following organizations.
