Perishable foods – fruits and vegetables – are some of the most requested product from Harvesters’ agencies. Without product donors, like After the Harvest, Harvesters would not be able to get this healthy, nutritious food to people in need.
After the Harvest, Kansas City, Mo., was awarded Harvesters’ Circle of Hope Product Donation award, which honors members of the food industry who demonstrate a regular commitment to Harvesters through quality product donations. After the Harvest mobilizes volunteers to gather edible fresh fruits and vegetables left behind in farm fields and orchards after harvest. They also partner with farmers, growers, and other produce handlers to take truckloads of produce that is either extra or has been rejected by buyers for cosmetic reasons. Last year After the Harvest donated more than 1.3 million pounds of produce to Harvesters and this year they donated more than 3.3 million pounds of produce. Here’s their story.
