Harvest Share is having a hard time running their program without the full-time use of a truck.

The Harvest Share program gleans unwanted fruit to help reduce conflict with bears and other wildlife and shares this produce with the Creston Valley community.

“Harvest Share is able to pay for insurance and fuel. This means it will cost the owner nothing and will allow Harvest Share to continue providing services in the Creston Valley. In the past Harvest Share has been fortunate to get a vehicle from Kokanee Ford. This year they are unable to provide one. This is a good opportunity for another business to be a sponsor.” said Harvest Share coordinator Charles Dennis.

Harvest Share is a part of the Creston Valley Food Action Coalition (CVFAC) a non-profit organization. CVFAC is a network of local food producers, agricultural agencies and concerned citizens working to create awareness utilizing local resources in a sustainable, healthy, secure and environmentally sound way.

Email Harvest Share at crestonharvestshare@gmail.com for more information regarding this sponsorship opportunity.
