As part of the Harvest Drive, non perishable items can be brought to school until 11/7/18
The Harvest Drive was founded at one Broward County elementary school in August of 1992. Not only do we have 14 distribution sites providing a week’s worth of groceries and a gift card or perishables to complete a Thanksgiving meal to over 2300 families for the Thanksgiving holiday but we also assist with gently used household necessities including clothing, shoes, kitchen items and more throughout the school year. Throughout the school year, students and community partners pack more than 1000 forty pound boxes of non-perishable food that are provided to Broward County Schools’ families in crisis on an as-needed basis. Each spring we engage in another smaller Harvest Drive at Western High to assist an additional 100 families with a week’s worth of groceries.
