Kindred Spirits Break Harvest Record!

6.28.14_1

With every harvest The Harvest Club program completes, we are able to provide more and more fresh produce to those who are food insecure in the Orange County community. Last year, we harvested over 50,000 lbs of produce, amounting to an average of over 4,000 lbs of backyard fruit delivered to food pantries, soup kitchens, children’s homes and senior centers. This year have already reached 40,000 pounds of produce collected and distributed to the hungry in only six months! We are very excited to have met this milestone and want to thank the volunteers from Kindred Community Church.

We couldn’t have reached this number without their hard work harvesting in Villa Park this June. The Kindred Community Church’s youth group and group leaders teamed up with our wonderful Harvest Captain, Dave, to bring in the largest harvest since The Harvest Club program’s establishment in 2009. This team brought in 2,900 POUNDS OF ORANGES!

This produce was delivered by our dedicated Harvest Captain to the Saddleback Church Food Pantry and will feed over 7,700 people in the area! We are so grateful for the helpful hearts and hands Kindred Community Church has offered us two years in a row and we look forward to future work together.
