Voter Registration

Harvest from the Heart and the Church of the Incarnation are committed to making sure everyone's voice is heard in our democracy.  Look forward to future voter registration events as the election cycle begins again.

Drive-Thru Food Drives

During the height of the pandemic, we distributed 1.6 million pounds of food to 24,853 families.  This abundant need, and equally abundant generosity, inspired the remodeling of our food shelf to better accommodate everyone in the community.

We have partnered with the Church of the Nativity in Bloomington to continue to provide food in a convenient drive-thru fashion once a month.  For more information on these events, please visit their website here.
