All of us at Harvest Project are deeply saddened by the news of David Foster’s passing.

As a founder of this work, David has a singular place in our hearts and in our history. His caring and drive to serve those in his community changed the makeup of the North Shore. Harvest Project (Change the World Foundation) was created in 1993 as his response to the realities he had experienced. His passion was to love the least, last, and lost – our neighbours who find themselves on the margins.

We offer our condolences to his family and we acknowledge David’s enormous contribution to the North Shore community. His energy and his passion through the early years of Harvest Project brought together so many people in our community. Thousands of residents have volunteered at Harvest Project and many more have received life-changing assistance. His drive to offer “a hand up, not a hand-out” continues to be Harvest Project’s mission 30 years on.

With profound thanks to David for his work and inspiration, we continue to help save lives. Close to home.

At this time, David’s family is planning a private service.

We invite everyone to share a positive comment about David on our Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/harvestproject
