Who, What, When, SHARE: Tell Your Friends and Family   

Who we are: SHARE-WS is a food justice nonprofit opening a cooperative grocery store in one of Winston-Salem's 21 food deserts. We are a cooperative, meaning we rely on the support of our member-owners and larger community to operate. 
What we do: We are currently functioning as the Harvest Mini Market, at 663 Peters Creek Parkway.  We plan to open our larger full service store, in the West Salem Shopping Center, before the end of 2021.  You do not have to be a member to shop at the Harvest Mini Market. Anyone is welcome to shop! We accept all manner of payments, including EBT, SNAP.
Where we are going: Once we open the main store, we will continue to reinvest into the immediate community by providing nutrition and cooking classes, particularly how to cook produce and products they may not be familiar with. We are also very excited to be able to create new jobs and job training.
