DoorDash_1

Second Harvest partnered with Door Dash through Feeding America to successfully provide a delivery program for the Senior Food Box Program, which allows Second Harvest to serve more local seniors. It is called ProjectDASH. Julie Chase-Morefield, President & CEO of Second Harvest, said “This effort is part of one of the strategic goals of Food Forward Lorain to connect people to food through technology and transportation networks. Seniors now make up more than 18% of who is served at food pantries, but we know many are still unable to access help because of a lack of transportation or mobility.”

A-Team in Action!

Second Harvest has its own A-Team. And they are more indispensable than Mr. T or any of the other characters in the action-adventure television series from the 1980s. This group of six to 10 members have worked quietly, consistently and without much fanfare since the departure of the National Guard from Second Harvest in early July 2021.
