Overview

The mission of Fresh Harvest Food Bank is to provide nutrition, support and education to families in need throughout Douglas County and surrounding areas. Fresh Harvest Food Bank provides support directly to local families as well as to other local non-profit agencies.
Our food pantry began as a small outreach effort at Acres Green Elementary School when the school principal and several staff members recognized that children were coming to school hungry. With the support of The WishList Network, a non-profit private operating foundation based in Lone Tree, the pantry expanded to provide nutritional support, including fresh produce and birthday bags, to families and students throughout the school district. Now as Fresh Harvest Food Bank, a program of The WishList Network, we provide food, other necessities, support, and education to families in Douglas County and surrounding areas, as well as other local non-profit agencies. 
Yes.  Fresh Harvest Food Bank is a program of The WishList Network, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Fresh Harvest Food bank is registered with the Colorado Secretray of State as a trade name of The WishList Network.

What’s in a Name

We believe that everyone deserves access to high-quality nutritional food. Our name reflects our commitment to provide fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as pantry staples, to our neighbors in need.
Fresh Harvest Food Bank operates as both a food bank and a food pantry. As a food bank, Fresh Harvest provides food and other necessities to local non-profit agencies who, in turn, distribute this food to their participants.
