GROWING PARTICIPATION, AWARENESS AND SUPPORT.

Addressing a community need requires a community effort. After the Harvest events are a great way to engage, learn about food waste, sign up volunteers, build awareness, take part in training or enjoy an evening out. Whether you have a favorite event or just want to do more to enjoy the friendship of others who share your passion for providing healthy food for hungry people, come join us.

To sign up for specific gleanings and market pick-ups from May through November, go to our Volunteer Calendar on the Gleaning Sign-up page.

Calling all burrito lovers, taco lovers, queso lovers or lovers of all things Chipotle!

Make your dinner plans now for our After the Harvest fundraiser to help rescue more healthy produce to feed more hungry people in our area. We have a goal of $300 to get 33% of the $ on our orders, so let’s eat, drink and give to those in need! Remember, you have to let the the cashier know that your order is a part of the After the Harvest fundraiser for us to get credit. Online or in-app orders do not apply. Guac on!!

Note: You can use Chipotle Catering to help with this fundraiser: A typical catering order costs about $300. Just call 1-800-CHIPOTLE to place your order (at least 24 hours in advance) to be picked up during the timeframe of your fundraiser and let them know that you want to pay upon pickup. When you pick up your order, alert the cashier before payment that you would like it to count towards the ATH fundraiser. And just like that, 33% goes back to ATH!
