Join us this September for Hunger Action Month, a month where people all over the United States stand together with the Feeding America network to fight hunger. It’s a month to spread the word and take action on the hunger crisis — and dedicate ourselves to a solution.
Help us nourish hungry families, children and seniors! Every donation makes a great impact. You can donate in the barrels at your local HyVee, Price Chopper or Dillons, store, or you can bring items to either Harvesters location. Here is a list of the most requested items.
September 2 – October 1

Harvesters has received a generous $2 million challenge grant from the Mabee Foundation! As a challenge grant, it is contingent on completing the fundraising for our KDC relocation and renovation project. We’ve raised more than half the funds needed to secure the grant, but we need your help to make it the rest of the way!
Every gift, large or small, helps make it possible for a child to focus in school, for a mom to make it through her night shift and pay her family’s bills, and for a senior citizen to avoid life-threatening illnesses. Your generosity can transform lives.
