• Among The Young At Heart

    March 28, 2016

    When compelled to help someone there is a keen intuition that takes place. Here at Harvest Hope Food Bank, our volunteers follow that feeling and strive to help others who are battling hunger on a daily basis. One such volunteer is Jestine Myers. Jestine volunteers in one our Emergency Food Pantries at Harvest Hope Food Bank. She is a very young 92 years of age and has enjoyed volunteering for the last 15 years. The choir at her church recently recognized her with a “Helping the Hungry” award. When asked what made her start volunteering in 2000, she said she had a close neighbor whose family was struggling with hunger at the time. She came to Harvest Hope to get them help and started volunteering ever since.

  • Thank You Red Gold!

    March 21, 2016

    After the historic flood in South Carolina, Red Gold sent a tractor trailer full of their products (43,000 lbs) to Harvest Hope Food Bank. This is footage from that donation. Special thanks to all of the employees of Red Gold and Colt Reichart who is a 4th generation owner at Red Gold!

    Also:

    The Bayer Presents Luke Bryan Farm Tour and its sponsors led by Red Gold Tomatoes teamed up to raise money to purchase food and supplies to help those affected by the flood in South Carolina. Red Gold pledged over $25,000 of canned tomatoes and other Farm Tour sponsors like Bayer, Cabela’s, CMS Nashville, Miller Lite, ATG, Citibank, Bad Boy Buggies and Red Gold's can supplier Ball Corp jumped in to support South Carolina.

    All proceeds which were over $105,000 went to Harvest Hope Food Bank located in Columbia, South Carolina. Harvest Hope distributed over 2.3 Million Meals which was in addition to their normal distribution.

    Remember: Whenever any natural disaster occurs, the foods that are most desired are canned products! Canned foods are fresh…picked and canned within a few hours, without preservatives and they are in one of the safest containers on the planet.

  • Over The Edge

    March 17, 2016

    "If all of your friends jumped off a building, would you?"  Now is your chance to answer the rhetorical question your parents asked you with a defiant, "YES."  

    On Friday, June 10-11, 2016 Harvest Hope Food Bank will be holding Over the Edge to End Hunger at The Hub in Columbia and you're invited.  Fundraisers that raise $1,000 or more will earn a spot to rappel down the 2nd tallest building in Columbia to help feed hungry people in South Carolina. 

    Are you interested in feeding hungry people in your community?  Sign up today.  Check out tips for getting donations here.  If rappelling down a 21-story building isn’t your thing, that’s okay.  You can sponsor other rappellers here.

    Look forward to seeing you there!
