Our Mission

front-page.jpg

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.

Holiday Simply Give 2016

Purchase cards through January 2, 2017

 

Meijer continues to be “Part of the Solution” in helping us end hunger in our communities. They have selected us again for the 2016 Holiday Simply Give campaign that will help replenish our shelves at Green Harvest.

The campaign will kick off on October 30 and run through January 2. Simply Give is a success, thanks to the generous customers and our supporters with a strong commitment to help feed a growing number of our hungry neighbors. The past 20 campaigns have generated nearly $14 million in food donations for more than 200 food pantries throughout the Midwest.

During the last campaign Meijer donated over $3400 to Green Harvest. I would like to see if we can double that total ($6800).

Let me encourage you to take the $10 Simply Give card to the Meijer’s located at 13521 S. Rt. 59 in Plainfield, IL

We could easily double our total if we would purchase at least one $10 donation card on either Friday Nov. 11 or Saturday Nov. 12.

Please encourage you friends, family members, co-workers, people in your church, school, civic group to get involved in a campaign that is truly unlimited.

Help us reach our goal of $6800.

If this Meijer’s isn’t close you can donate online by clicking on the Donate Now button. Just put Meijer in the description box.

Please Help With Holiday Baskets

Dear Friends,                                                                                    
Although every day is a struggle for our people 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 Thanksgiving, Christmas or other holiday meal will come from.
Through our partnership with the Northern Illinois Food Bank, we can obtain Holiday Meal Boxes. Each box contains everything needed to make a traditional holiday meal for a family of eight, including a 12-14 pound turkey, vegetables, fruit, potatoes, gravy, stuffing, dessert and other goodies.
To purchase the ingredients in the store would cost over $60.* Through our affiliation with the Northern Illinois Food Bank, you can help us provide a Holiday Food Basket to a family for just a $20 donation – that’s the equivalent of just over $2 per person for a full turkey dinner!
Our food pantry serves up to 125 families every month and we are always seeing new faces of people that are facing a crisis caused by the economy, unemployment, under-employment, an unexpected medical or car bill or additional family members living with them
Last year we distributed 300 Holiday Food Baskets to our food pantry visitors; this year we would like to distribute at least 300 boxes.
Can you help us make the holidays a little brighter for these families by making a donation for Holiday Meal Boxes? Please click on the link below to help us.
