Hi Everyone,

This blog is about an event that is important to us because it helps us get more food to people in need. You are all invited to the Harvest Happy Hour at Grace and Holy Trinity Founder’s Hall, Oct. 23 from 5-6:30 p.m. to celebrate our new beginning as After The Harvest, to raise awareness of what we do, and to raise money for food in the winter months when we cannot glean.

During the frozen months of December through March, we bring in semi-truckloads of potatoes every week from Wisconsin and truckloads of other produce from southern states where food can be grown year-round. The food is donated, but we have to pay the freight and packaging to get it here. This costs about $5,000 per load.

Please help us continue to bring food to people in need, by attending our Happy Hour fundraiser. For more information, go to http://aftertheharvestkc.org/event/harvest-happy-hour/?instance_id=239
