1.59 Million Pounds of Food Distributed in 2023!

Destin Harvest connected 1,593,491 pounds of food to 39 feeding programs in Okaloosa and Walton County for the year 2023! DH’s biggest food contributors include almost all the major food retailers in both counties. Some of DH’s biggest recipient programs include Children in Crisis, Church on the Bay on 331, Seventh-day Adventist in FWB, Crestview, and Defuniak, One Hopeful Place, Catholic Charities, Meals on Wheels, Live Oak Baptist of Crestview, Black Creek United Methodist Church, Shalimar United Methodist Bread House, S4P Synergy of FWB, Salvation Army, Freeport Community Food Program, Chataqua Healthcare Services, Crestview Area Shelter for Homeless, Blue Door at St Andrews by the Sea, Westminster Presbyterian, Holt Community Pantry, and Sharing and Caring of FWB. These local programs each received at least 30k pounds of food from DH’s deliveries last year and many of them at least double that!

For the year, DH distributed roughly 570k lbs of frozen meats, 425k lbs produce, 330k lbs bakery and bread, 190k lbs non-perishable / dry goods, 55k lbs of dairy, and 20k pounds of frozen foods.

Please Consider Making a Contribution  

DH struggles to maintain consistent funding after the holidays. We are still recovering from expensive truck repairs last quarter. DH needed those funds for fuel, regular maintenance, insurance, drivers wages, and other operation costs.

If you are not already supporting DH on an annual or monthly basis, I would like to encourage you to consider the impact your donation would have locally on those who are in real need of food assistance throughout the year. DH currently has a matching opportunity for all contributions under $15k. Meaning for every dollar you can donate to DH this year, it will be matched by our private benefactor. This is a tremendous way to maximize your support for DH and the many feeding programs served in Okaloosa and Walton County.
