Spring into Action

Spring has finally sprung! The days are getting longer, the weather is getting warmer, and the world is starting to bloom. It’s time to come out of hibernation and SPRING INTO ACTION! It’s the season of growth and renewal—a perfect time to grow our supply of nonperishable fruits and vegetables! Let’s make sure our neighbors faced with food insecurity can flourish by providing them access to nutritious and delicious food!

Plus, our team at Harvesters has been excited to dig in and unearth the answer to one very important question. . . are our supporters – Team Vegetables? Or Team Fruits? Vote your favorite by completing the steps below!

Step 3: Tie/Staple your bag shut with the colored sheet attached.

Step 4: Take a photo of you with your donation and post it to social media tagging Harvesters with the hashtag #TeamVegetables or #TeamFruits to encourage your family and friends to participate too!

Step 5: Deliver your bag(s) to Harvesters or drop it in a barrel at your local Price Chopper or Dillons store!

We’ll be keeping track of how many bags we receive for each team. On April 30 we will announce our winner!

Are you in need of service hours?
Students who fill a bag with at least 10 items and brings their bag directly to one of our Harvesters offices can earn 1 service hour per bag.

Please note this opportunity does not qualify for Court-Ordered Community Service Hours. Bags must be brought to Harvesters in person to receive community service hour credit. Harvesters can only provide service hours credit for volunteers in our service area. If you are not located in our service area, we highly encourage you to find your local food bank and see what opportunities they offer.
