"U.S.A. Harvest was founded in 1989 in Louisville, Kentucky. Our organization has expanded across the nation through the efforts of more than 125,000 volunteers. We now have chapters in over 130 cities and towns from New York to Los Angeles, and from Minneapolis/St. Paul to Miami. However, hungry people exist in every corner of our country. Therefore, we also reach out to feed the hungry in places from Bangor, Maine to Olympia, Washington and from Bismark, North Dakota to Roswell, New Mexico. U.S.A. Harvest is now serving over 5,400 agencies nationwide. Our volunteers have provided over 437 BILLION POUNDS of food to these deserving organizations. And by doing so, we’ve helped them save millions of dollars that have been re-allocated to other extremely important needs such as clothing, shelter, job training and opportunities, drug and alcohol rehabilitation and counseling programs. And, we’re proud to say that we accomplish all of these great things even though we don’t solicit or accept any money from our government! Remember, it’s all about the food, and our primary focus is not fund- raising, it’s “”FOOD-RAISING!”"" Collecting surplus food from restaurants, hospitals and food suppliers and deliver it to missions, soup kitchens and food banks – Moving food from people who have too much, to those who have much too little!"
