Harvest Time International is a great and trustworthy organization. I have donated to HTI for many years and it feels good to know that they will do with the donations what they say. I also like the fact that they don't believe in free hand outs to everybody.

This isn't a charity, it's a store. Food is cheaper at retail stores. Also I'm legally blind and soon as I walked in, an employee made a rude, demeaning comment. This place is a scam, praying on people in need. Disgraceful.

The prices were average. They charge 6 dollars to shop there. You can find better deals at walmart and biglots for food and it wont be passed the sell by date.
Also, employees made fun of my friend who is legally blind.
Bad experience overall. We really needed free or heavily discounted food and couldnt find any here.

My 12-year-old daughter needed community service hours for Beta Club and I wanted to make sure it was meaningful and gave her the opportunity to learn that not everyone is as fortunate as she is. I choose Harvest Time because it gave her the opportunity to help families in our community. The staff at Harvest Time were very welcoming and appreciative of us being there. The shift we signed up for was only 3 hours and she needed more hours to fulfill her community services hours. The staff welcomed us to come earlier and get more hours. Her "supervisor" Nick was very professional and knowledgeable but was also able to communicate on her level so that she understood exactly what was expected of her. She is looking forward to going back soon and even asked if they would let her come help "just for fun" because she liked knowing she was helping others. For me, it was a proud mom moment.

I like to say that volunteering uplifted me by helping someone else without a fee. The environment was safe and everyone staff and customers were friendly.

I have witnessed God work in wonderful ways through this ministry. Their mission field and influence has grown exponentially. They supply food, clothing, housing, medical and dental care, and spiritual support to those in need on a local and international basis. In disasters they are the go to people for help by local and state government. They are trusted by both secular and religious organizations due to their integrity and dedication. Corporate donors trust them with reclamation of product that would otherwise be lost or less efficiently disbursed by other NGO's.
This organization can be trusted to use every dollar of revenue in the mission field with the minimum in administrative costs.

Harvest time is an organization of integrity. An organization who cares about the people, the employees and the community. They see the need in the community and they meet it even if it takes from their own lives. Blessings to you all at Harvest Time.

Harvest Time International is a wonderful and God filled organization that helps people not only people within their local community, but people all over the world. They are an inspiration to so many other organizations and cities, providing a biblical model to helping families who are struggling. Everyone within the organization loves people and has committed their lives to helping others. I am honored to know and serve with them.

This organization goes above and beyond in their desire to help relieve the hurt and pain that so many in our nation and the nations of the world are experiencing through lack, trauma, devastation and other calamities that are facing the world today.
They provide various types of resources at minimal cost to those receiving help. Dr. Murphy and his staff are consistently looking for ways to better assist the community and the world at large.
I admire their diligence and the integrity to maintain an organization that is not money driven but people driven.
I am proud to be a part of this great organization.

While spending my vacation in Florida I had the privilege to help sort donations and stock shelves at Harvest Time. I was amazed at the huge amount of gift in kinds they receive and how well and proffessional it was all organized. Besides contributing to a real good cause it has also been a lot of fun volunteering there. The staff has been very friendly, welcoming and thankful. I also had the chance to see the dental clinic that back then has been in the process of being set up. They became aware of the problem of the people and simply reached out to meet the need.

When my family were in tough times and we were in really hard times with money, there weren't many options for us. Harvest Time was a blessing at the perfect time for us to help us get back on our feet.

I met John Murphy on an airplane and fell in love with him and knew I had to help his ministry anyway I could. John and Mary are truly servants of the Lord.

I have had the honor of knowing this ministry and outreach from it's early days. The visionaries and leaders are some of the most generous people one could ever meet. I have the privilege of watching Harvest Time International grow, from a small truck trailer to a massive warehouse. I think one of the many reasons for it's amazing growth is that Harvest Time has given people their dignity back. It's not about food and clothing alone. It's about giving people a reason to hope again. It's about giving people the dignity and the hope that they really matter. Sam Hinn

This organization helps families to help themselves. Their Community Hope Center helps families who struggle to stretch their income. It is NOT a grocery store but an assistance program which more than 500 families visit on a daily basis. They also house a medical and dental center as well as an DCF food stamp office.Harvest Time provides so many services helping local families but also worldwide. Just stop by for a tour or volunteer to see yourself!
