A HUGE thank you to the Aileen S. Andrew Foundation for a grant of $25,000 and to Arthrex for a $10,000 grant to help defray administrative costs. Their help is monumental in our fight against hunger!
Feeding Collier County
Since our inception in 1992 Collier Harvest has delivered millions of pounds of food to over 60 local social service agencies that serve the needy citizens of Collier County, Florida. By recovering this unused food and using it to feed the needy, our volunteers have enabled local charities to substantially expand their services by enabling them to allocate a larger portion of their budgets to non-food services.
In addition to food donations, Collier Harvest now accepts monetary donations. Although we keep our administrative costs low and our volunteers use their own personal vehicles and fuel to deliver the donated food, we still require some monetary support to fulfill our mission. Please contact us if you are interesting in making a donation.
Please come join us in our ongoing effort to wipe out hunger in our community. It only takes an hour or two of your time per week, and the rewards are immeasurable.
Our volunteers use this sheet to keep track of their deliveries, including the weight of goods delivered.
Our semi-annual newsletter keeps memebers and non-members aware of our efforts to feed the hungry in Collier County and Southwest Florida.
Our volunteers use our calendar to keep track of pickup and drop off schedules in addition to organization events.
