Destin Harvest continues to distribute over 90k pounds of food to feeding programs in Okaloosa and Walton County each month. As of today, DH has distributed 544k pounds of food, or meals, to 37 local feeding programs for the year. These programs include soup kitchens, food pantries, food box programs, shelters, backpack programs, low-income daycare, meals on wheels, and others. Many of these programs depend solely on a DH truck every week to feed their regular clients. While people return to work this season, they and their family still benefit greatly from having access to local feeding programs.
Each pound of food, or meal, DH rescues and provides for free to a feeding program has an operation cost of 14 cents. Summer and early Fall are DH’s most operation-intense and expensive seasons. Please consider making a donation and becoming a Harvest Advocate to help us get food to those who need it most.
