After the Harvest’s Strawberry Day 2023 was a resounding success! Thanks to the generous donation of 3 pallets of fresh strawberries from Driscoll’s Berries, a total of 2,880 pounds of the sweet and juicy fruit were distributed to 31 different agencies across 25 different zip codes in the 5 county area (Jackson, Clay, Platte, Johnson, and Wyandotte). Despite the event being postponed for a month due to mudslides and flooding in California, our dedicated staff, volunteers, and agency partners worked tirelessly to make sure these berries got into the hands of those who need them most.
As the lead sponsor of the 2022 Amaizing Sweet Corn Glean-A-Thon & Festival, Cargill is rallying a team of 25 to compete to shuck corn and deliver it to local food banks and agencies.
Congratulations to the deserving winners of this year’s awards.
