There are different ways to be involved with Community Harvest!
Each year, our office hires AmeriCorps to assist with the Lewisburg Community Garden and Community Harvest. Please check out the 2017-18 CORE Food Access Coordinator Position Description.
Community Service Federal Work-Study
Bucknell students can earn their work-study funds working at Community Harvest. Please read the job description and contact Lynn Pierson at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Each week we serve our weekly meal on Mondays at 5:00 p.m. and clean up is finished around 7:00 p.m.. If you are available earlier on Mondays from 2:00-4:00 p.m., we always need assistance with cooking, setting up all the tables, chairs, silverware, processing vegatables from the Lewisburg Community Garden, etc! Please contact Lynn at email@example.com to sign up for volunteer opportunities.
The approximate cost of this hot meal program operated entirely by volunteers year round is just $200 a week which breaks down to approximately $2/person to feed. We need your assistance in order to continue this important resource in our community. We’d be happy to publicize the sponsors of each week’s meal to Community Harvest patrons and the local community, who very much appreciate the opportunity for a nutritious meal and fellowship with others. In addition, we would be happy to advertise our sponsors on our website.
