Harvest House joins fight against hunger


Make text smaller Make text larger




Every year during March and April, Harvest House joins forces with a nationwide effort to end hunger in America.

For the past 16 years, Alan Shawn Feinstein of Rhode Island, founder of the Feinstein Foundation, has challenged America to fight hunger by dividing $1 million among nonprofit agencies across the country who participate in an appeal for monetary and non-perishable food donations.

Donations of food and/or money toward this challenge sent or delivered to Harvest House during March and April are calculated into the percentage that Harvest House receives of the $1 million dollars. The more money and food that is collected, the greater Harvest House will share in the funds.

Harvest House, a community lunch program, attempts to fill the physical and emotional needs of an underserved population in northern Sussex County by providing a hot lunchtime meal Monday through Friday.

In its 14th year of operation, Harvest House serves 40-45 meals per day.

For more information, visit Harvest House’s website www.harvesthousenj.org or visit the Feinstein Challenge website www.feinsteinfoundation.org.

Donations can be mailed to Harvest House, P.O. Box 374, Glenwood, NJ 07418. Non-perishable foods can be delivered to Harvest House, located at First Baptist Church, Route 23 and 284, Sussex, NJ, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Pick-ups can be arranged by calling (973) 875-6445.
