Remember the food gleaning that we volunteered for last growing season? It was called SOSA West and was part of a large, national organization. SOSA West has closed doors but the two incredible women that organized SOSA West are now involved with a new local Kansas City based organization called After the Harvest. They will be working with some of the same great farmers to host volunteer days to harvest food for the hungry, that would otherwise be wasted in the fields. I’m excited for their new adventures and the strength of creating this local network. Currently, since they are a new organization and the harvest season is in full swing, their website is under construction. You can find their upcoming events posted on their Facebook page with a contact number for the coordinator Karin Page in the about section. To be placed on their email list for volunteer days or to schedule a morning to volunteer as a group just contact Karin.
Please support this fantastic organization providing healthy fresh food for the hungry!! You can sign up to harvest strawberries tomorrow and Friday and they have more opportunities listed on their Facebook page.
The images above are some that I took last year when we volunteered to harvest food and we’re all anxious to help out again this year! You can read more here and here about past volunteering we have done harvesting food for the hungry.
