We’re thrilled to announce the results of our 2021 Harvest of Love Food Drive! 65 schools participated in the annual food drive, and together they raised enough food and funds combines to be able to provide more than 1.1 MILLION pounds of food to our neighbors in need!
Harvest of Love is Care and Share’s largest annual food drive. Operating as a creative competition, the drive challenges area elementary, middle, high school, and non-traditional schools to raise most needed food items such as canned meat, canned vegetables, canned fruit, peanut butter, and cereal, in addition to monetary donations. Schools that raise the highest number of pounds and dollars are recognized with certificates of appreciation, and the top winner receives the coveted Cornucopia Award.
The 2021 Harvest of Love school winners are…
|Doherty High||Cornucopia Award|
|Scott Elementary||Overall Elementary School|
|Cheyenne Mountain High||Overall High School|
|Eagleview Middle||Overall Middle School|
|Grand Peak Academy||Overall Non-Traditional School|
Congratulations to the winners and thank you to all of participants for the lasting impact your donations have made in the lives of so many of our neighbors in Southern Colorado. For every dollar received, Care and Share Food Bank is able to acquire 6 meals, furthering our ability to bridge the gap between hunger and abundance.
We are also grateful to sponsors: KKTV and SSFCU for their continued support of this annual drive, along with Two Men and a Truck, who, for the second year in a row, dedicated several hours of their time to help us pick up food donations.
