Feeding children is a main initiative for Harvesters and is at the forefront of our network’s efforts during the summer months. This is the time when thousands of children across our service area are at increased risk of missing meals because they lose access to breakfast and lunch at school each weekday.
Can you imagine the stress of not being able to feed your child? Countless parents will face that reality during the next few months. Providing 10 additional meals per child, each weekday, really adds up.
With your help, our network is able to help children thrive with balanced meals on the table during the hungry months of June, July and August. Flip to page 8 to learn how your generosity is being used to help Logan and his parents overcome financial hardship after a devastating accident significantly cut their monthly income.
For 40 years, Harvesters and its network of pantries, kitchens and shelters, have been a powerful force in northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas providing food and hope not only to children, but to parents and other adults at risk of hunger. Together, we’ve also created and grown additional programs designed to feed children—BackSnacks to fill the gap on weekends and Kids Cafe to provide meals after school and during the summer.
By giving kids access to consistent nutrition, you’re setting them up for a bright, productive future. Thank you for your partnership in this important work!
All my best,
President & CEO
