The Harvest Pack Mission
Healthy food on every table.
Who We Are
Founded in 2012, Harvest Pack is a 501(c)(3) humanitarian hunger relief nonprofit organization. Harvest Pack addresses food insecurity by supporting volunteers in bringing meal packing events to their local communities. Harvest Pack’s healthy meals are then donated to established nonprofit partners who distribute to food insecure communities. Though Harvest Pack’s primary focus is fighting hunger in the U.S., we are proud to support global needs with selected international organizations as well.
We envision a world where healthy food is accessible to everyone, regardless of where they were born or how much money they have; a world where people come together to help one another simply because it is the right thing to do.
Why We Do It
Harvest Pack recognizes that hunger is the world's #1 health risk. Hunger-related issues spill over into struggles with housing, safety, education, mental health, community, and all other aspects of life.
In 2017, 40 million Americans suffered from food insecurity, including more than 12 million children. It is estimated that about 700 million people worldwide struggled with food insecurity in 2018.

We recognize that food insecurity hits children harder than others. That's why we're dedicated to partnering with volunteers and organizations to ensure our meals get distributed into local schools. We partner with school counselors and backpack programs in order to we have a hand in making sure every student has food on the table.
