When: Flexible

# of Volunteers Needed: Rowan-Cabarrus YMCA’s Share the Harvest Community Farm was established in 2015 as a grassroots effort to alleviate hunger in our community by increasing the availability of fresh, healthy produce at local food pantries. The Share the Harvest Community Farm is a collaboration between the YMCA, Atrium Health, McGill Baptist Church, Cooperative Christian Ministry, Multiply Church/Corner Field Market, Operation Breadbasket and Freedom Christian Worship Center. Run primarily by volunteers, the Farm grows, harvests and donates an average of more than 10,000 pounds of fresh produce to the community through our partners every year. So far, the Farm has placed 225,000 servings of produce on the tables of families in Cabarrus and Rowan Counties. CCM received 2,328 lbs. in 2021 from the YMCA garden.
