At Green Harvest, we feel that these uncertain times have led us toward aiding low-income families, retirees, and the workers of our community who have recently lost their jobs. We believe that there is a serious problem today when parents must decide between feeding, providing shelter, or buying medicine for their children.
As you know every day is a struggle for people facing hunger, the holidays can be a particularly stressful .As their neighbors, co-workers and friends prepare for a celebration with family that includes a traditional meal, extra treats and gifts, they wonder if they will have enough food to keep their families from going to bed hungry. Together, we have an opportunity to take away the worry of where their Easter meal will come from.
Because of our partnership you, we can build Easter Food Boxes. Each box contains everything needed to make a traditional holiday meal for a family of four including a 6-7 pound ham or turkey, vegetables, fruit, potatoes, gravy, stuffing, dessert and other goodies.
To purchase the ingredients in the store would cost over $60. The ham alone will cost us at least $20 you can help us provide a Easter Food Basket to a family for just a $25 donation. Our food pantry serves up to 125 families every month and we are always seeing new faces of people that are facing a crisis caused by the economy, unemployment, under-employment, an unexpected medical or car bill or additional family members living with them
Last year we distributed 200 Easter Food Baskets to our food pantry visitors; this year we would like to distribute at least 200 boxes.
Can you help us make the holidays a little brighter for these families by making a donation for Easter Food Boxes? Please complete this form and mail back to us. You may also visit our website www.greenharvest.org and make a donation online.
Can you live on $22 a week? That is the challenge many of our clients face each day.
