Terms of Participation

The mission of Salem Harvest is to feed hungry families by harvesting food that would go to waste. Consistent with this mission, harvested produce which I take home will go to children or homeless, unemployed, elderly or low-income/ in-need individuals (see ORS 515.154(3)) I will conduct myself in a manner consistent with that mission while attending Salem Harvest sponsored events.
    Food Safety
  • If I am sick (fever, cough, sore throat, vomiting, or diarrhea), I will cancel my roster spot; and I will not bring sick children to a harvest.
  • I will wear closed-toed shoes throughout all harvests.
  • I will only bring clean containers to put produce into at harvests.
  • I will not bring glass containers to harvests.

  • I understand that Salem Harvest reserves the right to deny me entry to a harvest, or require me to leave a harvest, or remove me from the registration list if I do not follow these Terms of Participation
