Harvester's Go for the Green Food Drive
February 1 - March 17, 2024
The “Go for the Green” Food Drive is a unique opportunity for schools, businesses and organizations to combat hunger in our community. For the past 39 years, the Kansas City St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee has sponsored this drive in conjunction with Harvester's Food Network.
Three Ways to Participate
At Your School
Many area schools of all ages participate each year. The school that receives the most donations wins:
Free Parade Entry
Host Kick-Off Party
Your Business or Org
We encourage business and organizations in the community to participate in our virtual food drive. The winner of the competition has their name engraved on a barrel trophy as well as a free entry in the following parade year.
Donate online through the Virtual Food Drive. Here you can donate and select which school, business, or organization you would like your donation to be credited to. A donation of just $1 provides 2 meals for the hungry in our community.
If you are ready to Go for the Green with your organization, then simply click the “Donate Now” button below and you’ll be taken directly to our food drive page on the Harvester’s website.
Simply select the amount that you would like to donate, and be sure to enter your organizations name in the “Recognition Name” field while checking out, so we can be sure to credit the right group.
There’s no need to create or join a team, and please do not mark the donation as “Anonymous”, so we can properly tally each group’s overall donations to determine our winners.
