Overview:

Harvest Share has been in existance for 17 years. We provide the district of Parry Sound with much need food for low income families. We run two soup kitchens and an emergency food bank. We are quickly outgrowing the food bank space we rent and we would like to house all our programs under one roof. If we had our own building we could provide other much needed programs and training workshops to assist families in need in our district. With a larger building we could house more food and we would be able to provide services within our community that we can't now because of space. We spend a great deal of money of rental space and utilities.
