After the Harvest rescues nutritious fruits and vegetables from going to waste and donates them to agencies that serve hungry people, primarily in Greater Kansas City. Our volunteers glean after the harvest, picking what’s left in farmers’ fields and picking up already harvested leftover produce. The majority of the funds we raise helps secure semi-truckloads of donated produce that might otherwise end up in landfills. After the Harvest, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, is the largest produce donor to Harvesters-The Community Food Network.

Are you, your friends, family or organization looking for a fun activity while also helping others? Come join us! Breathe in fresh country air, get your hands a little dirty, bring the kids and help glean within 30-45 minutes of Kansas City. Then, if you can, help even more by delivering the fresh produce to local food banks and pantries.

Sign up to glean with us this season! Gleanings are scheduled May-November, on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings from 7:30-10:30 a.m. in the summer, with later start times in the fall. Other gleaning dates pop up outside of these pre-scheduled ones.

Other opportunities:

  • Does your organization/group wants to glean? Reserve your date now.
  • Do you want to lead a gleaning? We always need field supervisors.
  • Do you want us to come speak to your organization? We’d love to meet you!

Growing Community Together
Since our founding in 1969, Lakemary has looked to the open hearts and dedication of the community in which it is nestled to help us provide a multitude of opportunities for adults and children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other intellectual/developmental disabilities.

Because Lakemary offers so many programs and services to the residents and students we serve, there are many volunteer opportunities available that require a varied range of skills, certifications, and preparation. We split these opportunities into two basic classifications: Single visit volunteers will assist Lakemary staff with operational tasks or attend special events where they will be assigned to a team or task by the Volunteer Coordinator. Interactions with individuals served will be supervised by Lakemary’s trained staff

Ongoing volunteers will work directly with the adults or children on our campuses. In these positions, you may be asked to coach, teach, mentor, chaperone, or share a skill/experience with one individual or a group. In many cases, these interactions will be supervised by our trained staff
.

We know it takes a special person to volunteer and the generous work of people such as yourself ultimately allows us to fulfill our mission to provide an array of services, programs, housing, and valuable experiences for the individuals we serveTo learn more about how to volunteer or to sign up for a current opportunity, give our Volunteer Coordinator a call at (913) 557-4000!
