Expanding Produce in a SNAP to Meet an Expanding Need

In just over a year of the program’s existence we’ve provided over 70,000 pounds of reduced-cost produce through Produce in a SNAP to nearly 2,000 people. But this is just the beginning. Because we are looking at hunger and these systematic inequalities in access to healthy food from a business perspective, we can make a long-term, sustainable impact in people’s lives, while scaling this program to new markets.

Fall Back into the Groove Office Lunch Extravaganza

We've been so inspired by your #NoWasteBagLunch photo entries at our contest page over here, we jumped in the kitchen and started whipping up our own fall-welcoming bag lunches. We raided our harvests, broke out some of our favorite recipes and got to work! Check out some delicious lunch (with leftovers) ideas from Stacy, Will and Ariana.

Back to School : Making Change with Produce that Makes the Grade

It’s Back to School time! Even as we get busier and the days get shorter, it’s the perfect time of year to use the routine shake-up to set some new healthy habits. Especially if we’re actually making our way back into the classroom. We caught up with Karen Heinrich from the Office of Health Services at Baltimore County Public Schools to talk about how she’s using impact-driven produce from Hungry Harvest to build healthy eating habits into her school year day to day.

Full Circle Lessons From a Proud BCPS Alum

I’m a proud alumni of the public education system. I attended Baltimore County Public Schools for 12 years, starting at Summit Park, then Pikesville Middle, then Pikesville High. The lessons I learned from some fantastic teachers are now coming full circle. I use them to run Hungry Harvest so we can return the favor to some of the most influential teachers in my life.

Hunger Doesn’t Take a Summer Vacation

In this country, 27.6 million children go without the free or reduced-price meals they need during the summer. In Maryland alone, nearly 400,000 children rely on free and reduced-price school breakfast and lunch on a daily basis during the school year. When summer rolls around, these children suddenly lose access to the reliable, nutritious meals that help them develop healthy and strong brains and bodies.

     Customization FAQ       If you choose to customize, here are a few pointers to keep in mind!     What happens to my never list?  If you decide to customize, it will take the place of your "never list." If you customize, what you change on the  Customize Bag  screen is exactly what will arrive.  If you don't customize, we'll honor your never list like usual :)    Does this cost extra?  There is a $1.50 fee applied to every customized order to offset sorting and packing costs.  Beyond this fee, you’ll only be charged more than the price of your standard harvest if the items you’ve added have a greater value than the contents of your normal delivery. Don’t worry, this is tallied as you customize your bag, so you can review any additional costs before you submit your customization.   When can I start customizing?  The customization window opens on Tuesdays at 12 pm. We'll email you a reminder! You have up until  your order cutoff time  to customize your harvest.   Are all my changes final?  Start customizing and decide you want to go back to the standard harvest? Not a problem. We list the default quantities there for your reference. Just reset your quantities to the default before the order cutoff, and your customization fee will go away!   Do I have to customize?  Customizing is  totally optional . If you choose not to make any changes, you won’t be charged the additional fee and we’ll send you your box of goodies based on what we’ve curated that week.  We're excited to give you more control over your harvest! Plus, this will help you only get stuff that you know you'll use as we continue our fight against food waste.  Love and Customized Harvests,  Your Hungry Harvest Family
