Harvesters Food Sort

This is a great way to give back to the community as Harvesters is the area's only food bank. Their network includes over 620 nonprofit agencies including food pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, children’s homes, etc.  http://harvesters.org

Space has been reserved for us from 6 to 8 PM at their warehouse location at 3801 Topping Avenue.

We will be working in a warehouse so please dress casual for this event and no open-toed shoes are allowed inside.  Also be sure to bring some water, you'll need it.  This can be vigorous work but it is also a very casual atmosphere centered on teamwork.

Please check in at the front desk, then join us in the volunteer lounge. There will be someone on staff at the facility to show/instruct us on what they need done for that day.

Children ages 12 and older are welcome to attend provided they are accompanied by an adult.  Harvesters can also accommodate volunteers with special needs if we let them know in advance.

Please share this opportunity with your family, friends, and coworkers!  You are allowed to bring up to 5 guests and we can usually arrange for bigger groups if needed.

Harvesters will always accept any food donations too so bring them with you when you come.  Thanks for considering this opportunity to Serve Kansas City!


** Please be firm with your commitment when you RSVP.  The agencies plan our work based upon the number of people we tell them we have going.  If your plans change we understand, just please change your RSVP. **

    I have to cancel cos I have a hole in my leg. I fell on rebar on Friday and had to get 3 stitches. Don't think standing for 2 hours would be good for it! Have fun without me!

    Ugh. I got another invitation in the meantime that I accepted so I won't be able to make it this week. Next time for sure!

    So if you're on the waiting list, should you not show come time er...what?

      Great question! Harvesters depends on Serve KC to provide a specific number of volunteers for scheduling purposes. As people, who planned to attend, change their RSVP’s to ‘Not Attending’ an email is sent to the next person on the waiting list informing them their status has changed to ‘Attending’. Based on recent history and your location on the waiting list, in all likelihood, you will receive an email informing you your status is changed to ‘Attending’. A lot of words to say: wait for the email.

    I had to change my RSVP to not coming, since I sold my house and need to pack up A LOT of stuff in 2 1/2 weeks. Hope everyone has fun!!
