Celebrating 25 Years




HURRICANE IRMA RELIEF

Collier Harvest is committed to helping those effected by the devastating loss sustained from hurricane Irma. With the help of our partner agencies, we are identifying critical areas and have begun to supply essential food and water to those in need.  Together, neighbors helping neighbors, we can rebuild our community. Please consider donating to our Hurricane Irma Relief efforts to assist Collier Harvest in feeding our hungry neighbors during this critical time.

WHAT'S NEW AT COLLIER HARVEST?

Collier Harvest Student and Family Outreach

We are very excited to start our 2nd year working with the Collier County Public School District and its Title I schools. After a successful first year, we have officially named the program "Collier Harvest Student and Family Outreach" and have added an additional school to support. This year we'll be working with both East Naples Middle and Golden Gate Middle schools, suppling groceries to help families in need during the critical time of the month when food staples are running low.

PROGRAM FACTS:

 • 65% of all CCPS students are eligible for free or reduced meals due to family income level.
 • Once a month, we'll provide groceries to feed 100 families.
 • In total, 22,400 meals will be distributed by the program this school year.

We are grateful for the generosity of our program sponsors who help us make a difference in the lives of students and families at these schools.

Collier Harvest Fundraising drive 2016

NALC Stamp Out Hunger 2017

May 13th marked the 25th anniversary of the National Association of Letter Carrier's Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive and as always, our community gave with their hearts. Food donations received this year were just over 267,000 pounds! Because of your donations, we were able to provide the agencies we serve with much needed food resources during May, June and July. Thank you!    

Over the past year Collier Harvest has watch the need for food grow in our community. This proved true during our summer distributions. We experienced an increased number of our agencies needing to fill their shelves with food. Each agency left with their vehicles full, but wondering when they could return for more.  Incredibly, all food donations received through the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive has been distributed to our partner agencies as of early August.
To find out how you can help with the food shortage in our area please contact us for more information!

Special Thanks

We'd like to thank the Angel Fund for Small Nonprofits of the Community Foundation of Collier County for their grant of $10,000! This grant will be used to purchase specific food needs for our Spread the Love Warehouse Distribution in October which will provide over 16,500 meals to our partner agencies.

IT'S OUR ANNIVERSARY!
This year we celebrate 25 years serving our community and feeding our hungry neighbors. We've delivered over 18 million pounds of food to over 60 agencies through the years, and we could not be prouder of this huge milestone! Thank you to our daily volunteers who pick up surplus food 7 days a week and so many who have volunteered their time during food drives. Thank you to those who have donated food year after year for Stamp Out Hunger and to our donors whose monetary gifts allow us to purchase healthy and nutritious food to fill empty pantries. We hope you will continue to join us in our mission to feed those in need in Collier County!
