Our Community Can Food Drive 2022

September 1, 2022 - September 24, 2022

Our Community Can

Our Community CAN is a community-wide food drive where groups and individuals can adopt their neighborhood to help Harvesters collect food donations. All across our community, children, families and seniors need help getting access to food. It takes the help and support of friends like YOU to make sure we have enough food and resources on hand to reach these families and provide them with what they need.

How it works!

  1. Tell us what area you’re covering by registering here. Or you can contact us: In Kansas City, call (816) 929-3090 or email getinvolved@harvesters.org. In Topeka, call (785) 861-7750 or email fighthunger@harvesters.org.
  2. Pick up bags and flyers from Harvesters. Or you can download and print your own here.
  3. Fill out your flyers with your name and donation pick-up time.
  4. Deliver the bags and flyers to your neighbors on September 17*!
  5. Pick up bags of donated items from your neighbors on September 24* and return them to Harvesters or a local drop-off location.

*While dates are flexible, this drive helps us combat hunger during Hunger Action Month, and we prefer it take place in September. Please call or e-mail to discuss if the above dates do not work for you.
