Founded in 1999, Citrus County Harvest, Inc. started a Food Recovery program called Harvest. Each day, local restaurants donate remaining food at the end of the day. Our volunteers transport the perishables immediately to food pantries and meal services serving those in need. Two other programs, Blessings and Feed the Kids, provide low-income children meals during weekends within the school year and during the summer when out of school. Learn More
