ABOUT INLAND HARVEST
Every day restaurants, cafeterias, caterers, markets bakeries, schools, hospitals, wholesalers and retailers discard hundreds of pounds of good food ; food that could feed the needy in our community.
Inland Harvest was established in 1990 to feed hungry people by transporting surplus food donated by those mentioned above as well as private individuals to already established feeding programs in the Inland Empire. It is an unique organization without a physical site. Volunteers are trained for a specific route and use their own vehicle to transport food. Assignments for routes are made by email or phone.
Inland Harvest volunteers will pick up any amount of good, nutritious food from businesses in the Inland Empire and take it directly to shelters and community food programs.
Since 1990 our volunteers have transported more than 29 million pounds of good food to locations providing food for the hungry in the Inland Empire.
