Hunger Relief Efforts During COVID-19

Hidden Harvest is doing food rescue at an accelerated rate following the school closings and now the restaurant limitations put in place to stop the spread of COVID-19 .  As some of our agencies are closing, they are bringing their excess perishable food back to our warehouse.  These foods will be shared with shelters, soup kitchens (doing to-go meals) and food pantries still in operation. We are grateful to our partnering programs that are adapting to the situation in order to remain open and serve people safely.  

If you are in need of emergency food, please dial 2-1-1.

Hidden Harvest will continuously assess the emergency food needs in our community. In this unprecedented situation, financial donations provide Hidden Harvest with the most flexibility to best respond to these emerging needs. Donate now.

If you have excess food to share, please call the Hidden Harvest office to coordinate the donation at (989)753-4749.
