the project

Our Harvest creates access to healthy, local food in a way that honors land and labor. By creating farm jobs that pay family-sustaining wages, and employing responsible growing practices, they are working to strengthen the local food system in Cincinnati. Through strategic partnerships and advocacy Our Harvest seeks to make access to fresh, local food a possibility for all in Greater Cincinnati.

At the Sustainable Agriculture & Food Systems Funders Forum in Louisville, Kentucky, in June 2016, conference participants hosted a flash giving circle, facilitated by Noelle Ito from Asian Americans / Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy (AAPIP). The group came to a consensus to disburse the funds raised in the flash giving circle, matched by the Claneil Foundation, to the cooperative Our Harvest in Cincinnati, Ohio.


the steps

Our Harvest is a worker-owned cooperative that creates family-sustaining jobs in the agricultural sector. We are committed to open employment and the empowerment that comes from working in a democratically-run workplace.

Developed on the Mondragon Cooperative model out of Spain, Our Harvest is one of five cooperatives founded by the Cincinnati Union Coop Initiative (CUCI).


why we're doing it

At Our Harvest, we believe that fresh, healthy food is a fundamental right. To protect this right, we collaborate with various community partners, including Interact for Health, the Cincinnati Health Department, Produce Perks and others to increase the affordability and accessibility of fresh, healthy foods to all Cincinnati communities.

Through our Harvest Day program, we deliver fresh fruits and vegetables at wholesale prices to communities without grocery stores.

We also partner with the Freestore Foodbank and CAIN Food Pantry to donate any extra produce we have to communities in need.



Fees have been waived for this project, thanks to generous donors.
