Farmer Foodshare

DonationStation_eggsFresh local food is finding its way to agencies in Cleveland County that are working to relieve hunger. Each Saturday at our market locations in Uptown Shelby and Downtown Kings Mountain, volunteers operate a Farmer Foodshare® Donation Station.  Donation Stations raise local funds at the market to buy top-quality fresh local food for people at risk for hunger. Shoppers buy food from farmers and donate it, or give cash and volunteers buy food. Farmers donate excess food at the end of the market days, which ensures that nothing goes to waste.  Produce from home gardens is welcomed as well.  These donations are given to recipient organizations locally.

To make your donation, stop by the Donation Station table each Saturday between 8 AM and 12 Noon during the market season.

Farmers andDonationStation_volunteers volunteers created Farmer Foodshare® to connect people who grow food with people and agencies that need food, in ways that are economically sustainable and socially just. Farmer Foodshare® connects people to the source of their food and connects food producers to people in need. Local food can benefit every member of our local community.
