Harvest from the Heart
“Harvest from the Heart” brought farmers, distributors, retail stores, food brokers, gardeners, corporations and individuals together to collect more than one million pounds of fresh produce that will be distributed during the holidays to families via the San Antonio Food Bank and their partner agencies.
On December 12, members from the San Antonio Food Bank’s Food Committee gathered to announce they had surpassed their goal of one million pounds of fresh produce. In conjunction with the announcement, Redeeming Grace Food Pantry hosted a fresh produce distribution and served over 800 families.
Today, fresh fruits and vegetables make up 31% of the food that is provided to individuals, families and seniors that are food insecure in our service area. This gift of produce is especially helpful during the holidays when need is up and produce is less available to many families.
