Hope is in your hands
Fresh fruits and vegetables are going to waste. There are thousands of hungry people in the Greater Kansas City area in need of nourishing, healthy food. Enter After the Harvest.
We work to reduce waste, rescuing produce that’s good enough to eat and not pretty enough to sell. This rescued produce ends up on hungry families’ tables, instead of in a landfill or rotting in the field. But we don’t do it alone. Thanks to thousands of volunteers, growers and financial donors, After the Harvest, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, brings apples, berries, squash, tomatoes, lettuce, carrots, potatoes, peaches and many other kinds of healthy fruits and vegetables, completely free of charge, to agencies feeding our hungry neighbors.
We can do more. You hold the power right in your own two hands. Here’s how all of us, working together, can continue to rescue millions of pounds of healthy food for hungry people…
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
With so many ways to give, glean, gather, grow and get involved, we can’t wait to welcome you to After the Harvest. Take your pick.
It doesn’t take much to do a lot. The time is now: Feeding America estimates that 43 million people in the U.S. didn’t have enough food in 2021 (pre-pandemic–35 million). The crisis of food insecurity in our region due to the pandemic is far from over.
One single dollar can provide more than eight pounds of produce. Every dollar supports gleaning and helps us bring in semi-truckloads of fresh produce that might otherwise be thrown away. Give today.
From families and groups, to individuals, organizations and corporations, After the Harvest volunteers of all ages glean, manage events, fundraise and even represent us as Yambassadors. Find out how you can help.
