Harvest Day brings fresh, local product directly into your community at prices affordable to all. By combining the local farming and distribution expertise of Our Harvest with the place-based focus of anchor organizations in Cincinnati neighborhoods, Harvest Day helps to build a more accessible and secure local food system for all Cincinnatians. Harvest Day partnerships bring members of the community together around a fundamental right: fresh, healthy food.

By utilizing the Produce Perks nutrition incentive program, Harvest Day participants who receive SNAP benefits can purchase $20 of produce each week for just $10. The matching dollars made possible by Produce Perks increase the affordability of nutritious fruits and vegetables for individuals and families.


Other Food Access Distribution Locations:

  • Gabriel's Place
  • Findlay Market Farmstands
  • Healthy Harvest Mobile Market
  • Northside Farmers' Market


A model: Harvest Day at New Jerusalem baptist church

The first Harvest Day partnership was created with New Jerusalem Baptist Church (NJBC) in 2015. Here's how it works:

  • Our Harvest provides a weekly produce availability list to NJBC
  • NJBC congreation members who have EBT cards are able to purchase the vegetables they want at a wholesale price, as well as utilize the Produce Perks matching dollars to stretch their benefits
  • NJBC congregation members who do not use EBT cards purchase the produce at a marked-up price (determined by the church), with the extra funds going toward the Youth Ministry's Historically Black Colleges and Universities Tour [marked-up prices are still below standard farmers' market prices]
  • A church volunteer totals up all of the orders and sends the quantities to Our Harvest
  • Our Harvest delivers the produce to NJBC each Thursday; volunteers divvy up the individual orders, and participants pick up their order right there at the church
