In the second half of our show Allie Catherine Bush talks with Ellen Feldhausen of Harvesters. We find out how Harvesters works with donors and volunteers to provide food to the needy year round.
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.
