Matthew 25 Resource 2/23/10-Community Harvest Foodbank of Northeast Indiana (Fort Wayne)

Community Harvest's mission is to alleviate hunger through the full use of donated food and other resources, and to increase public awareness of and involvement in solutions to hunger. In pursuit of this mission, Community Harvest solicits surplus food and grocery donations from the food industry, and through community food drives, and transports the product to our warehouse at 999 East Tillman Road. The food is sorted, inspected for quality, and readied for distribution to the hungry via a member agency network of 460 plus churches and social service agencies. These agencies include such vital services as emergency food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, rehabilitation centers, youth and older adult programs. This network serves 16,500 unduplicated people each month in Adams, Allen, DeKalb, Huntington, LaGrange, Noble, Steuben, Wells and Whitley counties.

Community Harvest is the largest hunger relief organization in northeast Indiana and the only charitable resource for donated food and groceries available to all nine counties. Community Harvest is the only certified area affiliate of the Feeding America National Food Bank Network, and as such is the sole distributor of food bank allocations from national food donors, such as Kellogg's, Proctor & Gamble, and General Mills. Community Harvest has greater access than any other area human service organization to donated product offerings, and greater capacity to handle large-volume donations and coordinate their distribution to hundreds of neighborhood charities.
