Harvest Green Hosts Food Drive November 1st thru 30th

Harvest Green is collecting food this month to help the East Fort Bend Human Needs Ministry meet its increased demand. More than 800 families have signed up to receive holiday meals this year.

Harvest Green will do its part to help families in need this holiday season by hosting a food drive November 1st thru 30th benefitting the East Fort Bend Human Needs Ministry.

The public is invited to drop off non-perishable food items at any of the Richmond community’s 13 model homes. Model homes are open daily 10 am to 6 pm, Monday through Saturday, and noon to 6 pm Sunday.

“We are seeing new families each week at our food pantry,” said Stacey Williams, development director for East Fort Bend Human Needs Ministry. “The number of families we have served so far this year is up over 30 percent compared to 2022. More than 800 families are signed up to receive holiday meals this season. We need to fill our shelves.”

The East Fort Bend Human Needs Ministry is a local non-profit that aids families and individuals during times of temporary financial crisis. Harvest Green has a long-standing partnership with the organization and donates Village Farm produce to their food pantry.

The most needed items include canned meats, fruits and vegetables as well as broth,
canned soups, corn muffin mix, family-sized side dishes, French onion topping, cake frosting, boxed stuffing mix, cream of mushroom soup, boxed pie crust mix, pie filling, cranberry sauce, condensed/canned milk, canned pumpkin pie filling, canned yams and boxed mashed potatoes.
