Community Harvest Food Bank, Let’s Give Allen County

Presenting a Q&A with Community Harvest’s Executive Assistant, Sara Koerner. Community Harvest is one of the five nonprofits selected for the Let’s Give Allen County campaign on May 6th.   Give us a brief history of your organization and its role in our community. The mission of Community Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Indiana, Inc. is “… seeking to alleviate hunger through the full use of donated food and other resources and to increase public awareness of and involvement in our mission.”  Community Harvest collects wholesome surplus food and grocery products that are donated by the food industry and other donors then utilize it for hunger relief. During the course of their history, Community Harvest has distributed over 186.5 million pounds of food and grocery products throughout their nine-county service area which includes:  Adams, Allen, DeKalb, Huntington, LaGrange, Noble, Steuben, Wells and Whitley counties.  Throughout a network of more than 400 member agencies, food is distributed to a variety of food pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, rehabilitation centers, and youth and senior citizen programs – serving up to 90,000 annually. What are some ways that the public can get involved with your organization? Community Harvest is always looking for volunteer groups who want to make a difference in their community.  We invite all individuals, families, businesses and community organizations to come and spend some hours helping to feed our hungry neighbors. Community Harvest relies heavily on the support of volunteers to fulfill our mission, and we have many different avenues through which you can contribute your time. You can be a part of the over 7,000 volunteers needed each year to help Community Harvest alleviate hunger in northeast Indiana! For more information on how to help out at CHFB, contact Tammy Klimek at (260) 447-3696 ext. 306 or tklimek@communityharvest.org. If you’ve got a green thumb, we want you! CHFB is looking for gardeners throughout our nine-county service area to partner with us through the upcoming planting and harvesting seasons, giving a part of your crop to feed northeast Indiana’s hungry. When you donate your newly picked produce to the food bank, you are not just providing families in need with food, but you are offering them nutritious food options. Your fresh fruits and veggies will go directly from your fields to our Farm Wagons or into our Saturday Morning Helping Hands food distribution – two Community Harvest programs where our goal is to supply fresh foods to both rural and urban low-income clients. For more information about how to donate garden produce to Community Harvest, contact Andy Bullinger at (260) 447-3696 ext. 312 or abullinger@communityharvest.org. Do you have any upcoming events? On May 24th Foellinger Theatre at Franke Park is kicking off its...
