At Green Harvest, we feel that these uncertain times have led us toward aiding low-income families, retirees, and the workers of our community who have recently lost their jobs. We believe that there is a serious problem today when parents must decide between feeding, providing shelter, or buying medicine for their children.
It’s that time of the year again where we start planning for our clients and their families for Easter. Although every day is a struggle for our clients facing hunger, the holidays can be a particularly stressful time. As their neighbors, co-workers and friends prepare for a celebration with family that includes a traditional meal, extra treats and gifts, they wonder if they will have enough food to keep their families from going to bed hungry.
Together, we have an opportunity to take away the worry of where their Easter meal will come. Through your generosity, we can put together Holiday Easter Meal Baskets for a donation of just $25 each.
Each basket contains everything needed to make a traditional Easter meal for a family of eight, including a ham, canned vegetables, fruit, instant mashed potatoes, gravy, dessert and ground coffee.
Our food pantry serves about 125 families every month and we are always seeing new people that are facing a crisis caused by unemployment, under-employment, an unexpected medical or car bill or additional family members living with them.
Last year we distributed about 150 Holiday Meal Baskets to our food pantry visitors. This year we would like to distribute at least 200 boxes.
