Review for Citrus County Harvest Inc, Inverness, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Citrus County Harvest, running the Blessings program, is a local program serving the children of Citrus County, Florida. Their mission is to erase weekend hunger for school children, so they will be prepared to learn during the week. They have built an amazing program serving 16 elementary schools, three middle schools and one high school in our rural and low income county. Each week an army of volunteers puts together bags of food to feed a child breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as snacks and beverages, for the weekend. These bags are delivered to the schools on Friday and the children pick them up on their way to their school buses. This is a strictly local program with no fees to national organizers. Blessings was started single handedly by an immensely dedicated woman, and has been built into a county-wide effort. The numbers grow every year and the program is in great need of all donations.
