GROCERIES AND FOOD RECOVERY
COVID-crisis update: We are not able to accept grocery donations at this time. Check our Update Page to see how you can best support our work. Through the crisis, we are supporting clients with grocery gift-cards delivered to each one. Information below describes programs available before/after COVID restrictions.
GROCERY SUPPORT PROGRAM
Through our onsite grocery depot, we supply clients and their families with groceries on a monthly basis. Our approach is to provide each client with the power of choice. This past year, we provided perishable and non-perishable food and toiletries valued at more than $750,000 to clients.
EMERGENCY FOOD PROGRAM
Pre-packed bags of food are provided for those who are waiting to join the Client-Care Program, Emergency-Needs Clients, and for clients in transition from Harvest Project programs.
FOOD RECOVERY PROGRAM
100% of food and personal hygiene products that Harvest Project offers to clients is donated by individuals, businesses and community groups. We have worked closely with Vancouver Coastal Health North Shore to develop this food recovery program and protocols for safely handling, transporting and storing perishable foods. We work to provide a healthy, practical range of foods.
To provide for clients through 2020, we received and shared more than $750,000 food (at retail value) – received through food-drives and donations from across the community.
Bring your donations to Harvest Project or drop them in the bin at one of our many grocery retail partners on the North Shore. (NOTE: During COVID crisis, we invite you to make a cash donation to Harvest Project at any one of most North Shore grocery stores or donate online here to provide a grocery gift-card.)
