Harvest Share is a partnership with the Oregon Food Bank that brings free fresh fruits and vegetables to the students of Portland State University and the greater PSU community. This is an effort to reduce food insecurity among our students and increase access to healthy food choices. Volunteers are also welcome!

When: Second Monday of the Month at Noon, rain or shine, first-come/first-served
Where: Outside Shattuck Hall on the Park Blocks
Who: All PSU Students & the PSU Community at Large
Note: Bring your reusable shopping bags. Limit one of each kind of vegetable or fruit per person. Quantities are limited.

Our first Harvest Share on the PSU campus on April 13, 2015 provided fresh fruits and vegetables to over 460 households and over 1,130 individuals from over 85 different zip codes. Among these numbers, it was recorded that 392 students were served, 55 staff or faculty were served, and 20 community members benefited from this service (note that some students can be considered staff as well). We also logged over 95 hours of volunteer time.
