Help Feed Hungry People in YOUR Community
Rescue Fruits & Veggies at Farms Near Kansas City

Fruits and vegetables are going to waste in farmers’ fields. Can you help us save this fresh, nutritious produce to feed hungry families?

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!

After the Harvest has a very small staff, so we only succeed because of volunteers like you! Thanks so much for your help.

Volunteer tenant improvement architect needed for Truman Heritage Habitat for Humanity

 

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY DESCRIPTION:  Truman Heritage Habitat for Humanity (THHFH) in Eastern Jackson County, MO is seeking the commitment of a professional volunteer or firm qualified to provide architectural design services for a retail tenant finish improvement.  This position is ideal for a professional architect that shares Habitat for Humanity’s passion for helping lower-income households and neighborhoods to achieve strength, stability, and self-reliance through homeownership and that values the role that Habitat for Humanity ReStores play in achieving its vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.  Every volunteer helps Habitat build homes, communities, and hope.

 

Habitat ReStores serve our mission in two ways.  First, ReStores sell surplus and gently used furniture, appliances, and building materials to the public at a fraction of the retail price, making home improvement affordable for lower-income families, landlords and the community at large.  And because our inventory is donated by local businesses, contractors and residents as a means of recycling, ReStores also support environmental sustainability be diverting useful items from the landfill.  Every ReStore donation helps to build stronger communities. 

 

Secondly, the net proceeds from the operation of Habitat ReStores provide a significant and flexible source of funding to support Habitat’s primary mission of building affordable home ownership opportunities for working families in need of safe, decent, affordable housing.  In this way, Habitat for Habitat has found a viable and long-lasting solution for achieving organizational self-sufficiency and has reduced its reliance on public funds and competitive grant dollars.  Every ReStore purchase helps to create the opportunity for a better life for the families we serve.

 

SCOPE OF PROJECT:

THHFH is currently vetting locations for a new Habitat ReStore in Eastern Jackson County.   Architectural services are required to identify, and eventually design, the scope of tenant improvements that will be required to achieve minimum occupancy standards and THHFH’s goals for operational efficiencies and overall performance.            

 

PROJECT PERIOD:

1-3 months depending on volunteer availability.

 

VOLUNTEER EXPERIENCE:

Minimum three years of professional experience as a licensed architect or structural engineer, preferably including design of retail tenant finish, including some inventory warehousing, parking lot design, and loading dock improvements.
