Sharing The Harvest NL is a registered non-profit located in Newfoundland and Labrador.
Our mandate is to make it easier for local food producers to share their harvest with their fellow Newfoundlanders and Labradorians via food banks and food programs.
We are proud to help create, facilitate and promote programs which address the food insecurity issues faced by our province.
We believe eating locally is good for the environment and for the body, mind and spirit.
Our first program is Hunters Sharing The Harvest.
Our Hunters Sharing The Harvest program is inspired by similar program elsewhere in Canada and the US, usually under the banner of Hunters Helping The Hungry or something similar.
We have worked hard over the years to lobby the government to allow hunters to donate moose meat to local food banks. In September 2020, we met with Minister Elvis Loveless and his staff, along with Eg Walters from Community Food Sharing Association. They accepted our presentation and we have worked together to allow donations of big game to food banks, which started in mid-November 2020.
Hunters who wish to donate a portion of their harvest can contact us to facilitate the donation or to get more information on how they can donate.
Any funds donated to us through our Donorbox would be used to assist hunters with butcher costs.
