Mission of the Month

Shared Harvest Foodbank, our October mission, collects, warehouses, transports and distributes food to over 90 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and other non-profit agencies in a five-county area in Southwest Ohio. (The Kings Local Food Pantry in South Lebanon, to which Lakeview donates non-perishable items, is one of the food pantries served by Shared Harvest.)  In addition to Warren County, Shared Harvest distributes food in Butler, Darke, Miami and Preble counties. (Shared Harvest is a sister organization to the Freestore Food Bank serving Hamilton County.)  Shared Harvest warehouse and offices are located in Fairfield.

There are three primary programs operated by Shared Harvest, the primary one being foodbanking and distribution. Retail grocers, federal programs, the Ohio General Assembly, and co-op buying programs all contribute/allocate funds and groceries in this massive effort.

A second major endeavor of Shared Harvest is direct service programs including drive-thru food distribution events and the “Childhood Hunger Back-Pack Program.”  Thousands of food insecure children in the five county area are provided food to take home each week.

The third major focus of Shared Harvest is advocacy.  In this capacity Shared Harvest educates the public about ways in which individuals and organizations can reach out to elected officials to advocate for legislation that impacts food insecurity in our state and nation. People are also assisted in applying for SNAP (food stamps) when it is determined that they are potentially eligible.

Covid and now economic inflation has placed a tremendous burden on the capacity of Shared Harvest to serve the increased food needs of its clients. Please consider a gift in the month of October.  Check their website at www.sharedharvest.org for detailed information.
