From hungry to healthy

Hope is in your hands

Fresh fruits and vegetables are going to waste. There are thousands of hungry people in the Greater Kansas City area in need of nourishing, healthy food. Enter After the Harvest. We work to reduce waste, rescuing produce so it ends up on hungry families’ tables, instead of in a landfill or rotting in the field. But, we don’t do it alone. Thanks to thousands of volunteers, growers and financial donors, After the Harvest, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit,  brings apples, berries, squash, tomatoes, lettuce, carrots, potatoes, peaches and many other kinds of healthy fruits and vegetables, completely free of charge, to agencies feeding our hungry neighbors.

We can do more. You hold the power right in your own two hands.

Here’s how all of us, working together, can continue to rescue millions of pounds of healthy food for hungry people… 


Glean after the harvest, picking what’s left in farmers’ fields and orchards so nothing goes to waste.


Pick up already harvested leftover produce from farmers markets, farm stands and other locations.


Procure semi-truckloads of produce no longer destined for stores, usually due to slight imperfections.

Family gleaners


It doesn’t take much to do a lot. One single dollar can provide more than eight pounds of produce. Every dollar supports gleaning and helps us bring in semi-truckloads of fresh produce that might otherwise be thrown away. Give today.


From families and groups, to individuals, organizations and corporations, After the Harvest volunteers glean, drive, manage events, fundraise and even represent us as Yambassadors. Find out how you can help.


It’s a simple mission, yet our impact is powerful. We fight hunger and improve nutrition with fresh produce that not only fills the belly, but also nourishes the body. All while reducing food waste.

Fresh produce fights diet-driven illnesses like diabetes, obesity, and high blood pressure
