Food donations and a repeat win

Harvesters is a nonprofit regional food bank that serves 26 counties in northwestern Missouri and northeastern Kansas. Its Take Your Can To Work Day is an annual event for local businesses to help make an impact on hunger in our community — and we were happy to participate again this year!

Last year, we started a friendly competition between departments. Congratulations to our asset management and compliance team for its repeat win on collecting the most food donations! Our whole office overflowed four large bins. Donations included canned vegetables and fruit, boxed dinners and more.

Interested in taking action too? You can get involved in three ways: give food, volunteer and donate money.

To find a food bank near you, visit the Feeding America nationwide network of food banks’ website. Feeding America is collecting donations ahead of Earth Day, Friday, April 22, to support its efforts to divert safe, edible food from being wasted. More than 2 billion pounds was distributed to Americans facing hunger last year.
