opportunities for everyone in every season.

For a small nonprofit, After the Harvest helps create a big impact–rescuing and delivering thousands of pounds of fresh produce to area shelters, food pantries and community kitchens primarily in Greater Kansas City. Fortunately, it’s a passion we share with our generous growers, donors and the many volunteers who work with us. We’re all in this together. Volunteer and bring your own skills, talents and time to make a difference.

“That’s why I come here (to the food pantry)—to help feed my children. I come here because it helps my family toward the end of the month when things get tight. Today, (we) get corn. At the store you pay how much for it? I can’t afford…that.”
