2017 is shaping up to be another wonderful year for the Harvest Club, and sometimes we just need to take the time to celebrate. So, in September we took a weekend off from harvesting to do just that. OC Food Access Coalition invited all of our wonderful Harvesters, Growers, and Captains alike, for lunch to express our sincere gratitude in all that they do for our program.
And we have a lot to be thankful for. This year already, our volunteers have picked and transported over 67,000 pounds of produce to nearly 70 different hunger prevention programs. That is enough servings of fresh fruit and vegetables for over 170,000 people!
This program continues to grow year after year and we love these chances to enjoy quieter moments with all the people that make that possible. Thank you so much to everyone that came out to our Appreciation Lunch. It was wonderful to see you all! And even if you could not make it, know that you have our gratitude for all the support you have shown the Harvest Club. We could not do this without you.
