We are excited to announce the appointment of Andrea Stratman as the new Executive Director of River Cities Harvest. Andrea brings a wealth of experience and a deep passion for serving the community. With her leadership, we are confident that River Cities Harvest will continue to grow and make an even greater difference in the lives of individuals and families facing food insecurity.

At River Cities Harvest, our mission is to rescue surplus food from local businesses and redistribute it to partner agencies that serve those in need. By working closely with restaurants, grocery stores, farmers, and other food providers, we rescue fresh, healthy, and wholesome food that would otherwise go to waste. Through efficient logistics and partnerships, we ensure that this surplus food reaches the tables of individuals and families struggling with hunger.
What We Do
- Food Rescue: We collaborate with local businesses to rescue surplus food that is still safe for consumption. By collecting these donations, we prevent food waste and redirect it to those who need it most.
- Partner Agencies: We work closely with a network of partner agencies, including food pantries, shelters, soup kitchens, and community organizations. These agencies play a vital role in distributing the food we rescue directly to individuals and families experiencing food insecurity.
- Community Support: We engage with the community through various initiatives, raising awareness about hunger and advocating for long-term solutions. We also provide educational resources to promote healthy eating habits and empower individuals to make nutritious food choices.
