Everyone's Harvest

Mission

Everyone's Harvest's mission is to provide access to healthy, affordable fruits and vegetables through certified farmers’ markets and community food programs.

The Big Idea

The Big Idea for Everyone’s Harvest helps deliver this nonprofit’s core mission for almost 20 years:connecting everyone with fresh, affordable food through local farmers markets and community nutrition programs. Families can use public food assistance benefits at Salinas, Marina and Pacific Grove farmers markets to purchase fresh, local produce directly from growers in the region. This initiative helps meet the challenges of food insecurity, improves community nutritional and overall health and inspires healthy eating habits for a lifetime

The Fresh Rx Program is a collaborative program that focuses on preventative health and aims to improve the health and well-being of our community. Fresh Rx promotes a healthy lifestyle through the increased consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables. Participants are provided with new recipes each week and health screenings throughout the duration of the program. Fresh Rx allows us to educate and impact the health of our community in a sustainable way. Amanda Meyer Health Promotion Manager Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System

We’re In This Together

Nonprofits are more important that ever in this trying time. Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $7.8 million for 162 local nonprofits in 2020.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $35 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful. Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 7,578 donors. We did it, together.

The 2021 Campaign begins November 11.
