Harvesters’ mission is to feed hungry people today and work to end hunger tomorrow.
As this area's only food bank, Harvesters is a clearinghouse for the collection and distribution of food and related household products. We've been helping people in need since 1979 by:
- Collecting food and household products from community and industry sources.
- Distributing those products and providing nutrition services through a network of nonprofit agencies.
- Offering leadership and education programs to increase community awareness of hunger and generate solutions to alleviate hunger.
Our network includes more than 620 nonprofit agencies throughout our 26-county direct service area, including emergency food pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, children’s homes, homes for the mentally disabled and shelters for battered persons. Our network provides food assistance to as many as 66,000 different people each week. Harvesters is a certified member of Feeding America, a nationwide network of more than 200 food banks, serving all 50 states.
