Jeff Green founded Green Harvest Food Pantry in October of 2001. Jeff saw a need when the economy started to decline after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. So, when President George W. Bush encouraged each American to stand up and help those in need, Jeff and his wife (Amy) started Green Harvest. For Jeff, helping others has been his mission for over 20 years. He has been involved with providing food and shelter both here and abroad.
Green Harvest is a non-profit, 501(c)3, food agency that serves the working poor in the cities of Aurora, Montgomery, Naperville, Oswego, Plainfield, or Yorkville in Illinois with about a weeks worth of food once a month for 6 months. Green Harvest strives to impart dignity to the food delivery process for those suffering from hunger insecurity- those who are insecure about where their next meals are coming from.
This is why Jeff incorporated the "Client's Choice" philosophy. When we are able to help someone, we don’t hand them a sack of pre-sorted food; we give them the opportunity to "shop" our aisles, and make choices just as if they were in a grocery store.
We believe that by imparting just this little bit of respect back into the food assistance process, we assist our clients to become independent faster.
We are a non-profit organization. We do not charge for any of our services. We depend totally on generous donations from caring people. We do accept donations of the following:
All contributions to Green Harvest are tax-deductable under our 501(c)3 status. We are happy to provide a receipt for contributions, whether for much needed items that are donated, or for financial contributions to go toward meeting the need.
