There are many ways that families, organizations, faith-based groups and companies can make a difference by donating food to Harvesters.
Hold a food and fund drive
Sponsor a food and fund drive for Harvesters at your workplace, school, place of worship, neighborhood or civic organization. Collect our most needed items. Harvesters' Food Drive Kit will help you set it up and get started.
For more information or to schedule your food drive, please contact Harvesters' Community Engagement Team or call toll-free 877.653.9517.
Start a Virtual Food Drive
Expand your drive and make it mobile by hosting a fun, online Virtual Food Drive. To start your own Virtual Food Drive, click here and then click on "Form A Team". Your drive can be set up as a competition between teams, departments or branches and shared electronically with friends, co-workers or family by email or e-blast, on a website or social media. Every $1 donated helps Harvesters provide three meals in our community.
Donate food today
Donate food at our Kansas City or Topeka facilities during normal business hours. Look for our blue donation barrels in area grocery stores, including Price Chopper stores.
Collect or purchase single-serving, shelf stable foods and then assemble sack lunches. This is a great activity for a corporate or community group. Lunches assembled from this food drive/volunteer activity are used for youth feeding programs, including Kids Cafe, and also are distributed at libraries, clinics, and schools, and are used in disaster response. We will provide a list of specific food items and packing supplies. To learn more about Give Lunch, please contact Harvesters' Community Engagement Team or call toll-free 877.653.9517.
Donate garden produce
Plant an extra row for the hungry or donate excess garden produce to Harvesters’ Plant A Row for the Hungry program. During the growing season, donate fresh garden produce at participating garden centers.

Cause marketing, or cause-related marketing, is a potentially profit-making initiative by a for-profit company or brand to raise awareness, money and/or consumer engagements in a social or environmental issue. Harvesters—The Community Food Network is fortunate to have many cause-marketing partners who have helped to raise both funds and awareness to help fight hunger in our region. All businesses engaging in a Cause Related Marketing Campaign with Harvesters must sign an agreement that clarifies the campaign, goal, and action items.
