We support the Harvest Project because we take seriously the Biblical injunction to "feed the hungry and help those in trouble." Isaiah 58:10 NLT

Harvest Project, extending a hand-up, not a hand up, began with the vision of WVBC member David Foster in 1993 and continues onward with 120 active volunteers annually.

Harvest Project vitally supports individuals and families across the North Shore who are challenged by a family breakdown, illness, job loss, poverty, or other crises, providing client-care coaching and counseling, grocery and clothes support, thrift shop, and emergency drop-in help.  They provide coaching plus counseling, North Shore rent bank, grocery, clothing support, and Clothes For Change thrift shop.

Harvest Project impacts the community by breaking the poverty cycle and restoring people to healthier lives.  They empower their clients physically, emotionally, and spiritually.  They are so much more than a food bank! For more information visit their website.

Recent Testimonial of a Single Mom

“When I first came to Harvest Project, my child was struggling with multiple health issues and I wasn't able to work for more than 5 years in order to be able to take care of her mental and physical needs. This caused me to go through financial difficulties, depression and anxieties. I felt hopeless and broken.

Harvest Project helped me to save money with groceries, diapers and clothing. This immediately made me feel more secure and less stressed about controlling my large debts.  I felt l am loved and cared for within my community.  All my client care appointments filled me with hope and love and joy.

I felt so blessed to know and meet all my wonderful support workers who were so understanding, caring, loving and faithful, beautiful sisters. Also, all other staff were very welcoming at all times. This is an unforgettable memory in my life.

Harvest Project accepts people for who they are rather than judging their situations.  Everyone deals with problems that are much more than they could explain or reveal to others.  In my experience, Harvest Project is the only place where people can feel free to share their stories and feel understood and loved without judgment. Also, their supports are much more extensive and beneficial than other places.”
