Harvest of Love Reception

The Harvest of Love food drive is held the first three weeks in November each year exclusively within area schools. This food drive is our biggest  source of donated food and also helps us to raise  funds for our hunger relief efforts. This year, we are partnering with KKTV 11 News to make Harvest of Love an even greater success.

Yesterday, we hosted  a panel discussion focusing on best practices and idea sharing to kick off this year’s Harvest of Love. We were so happy with the turnout and are inspired by all of the young and bright minds that are invested in our community.

Some fantastic ideas came out of this inaugural panel discussion, such as collecting food through theme days like Mac and Cheese Monday and Tuna Tuesday.  Another idea was to host a fundraiser like “Say Goodnight to Hunger,” where the student body brings money to wear pajamas to school, or “Hats Off to a Hunger-free Colorado.” 
This year’s participating schools will be working to outdo last year’s winners:
  • Cornucopia Award-Most pounds of food collected: Doherty High School (464,231 pounds)
  • Elementary School Winner: Scott Elementary (58,568 pounds)

*All totals include financial donations converted to pounds of food.
