Activity

1. Harvest Kitchen

We distribute hot meals at Ueno Park each Saturday.

2. Harvest Pantry

We provide emergency groceries to households in need of assistance. We have three distribution methods:

  1. ①Direct distribution at our warehouse on Thursdays and Saturdays
  2. ②Care packages sent directly to recipients
  3. ③Mobile pantry – distribution at designated locations

3. Food Banking

We receive food donations from manufacturers, importers, retailers, and farmers for distribution to welfare agencies, nonprofits and faith-based groups that provide social services to those in need.

4. Advocacy & Development

We promote food banking in Japan and in the region through various activities. Since 2008 we annually conduct a “Food Bank Caravan” in which we travel throughout Japan visiting local food banks and communities interested in starting a food bank. We have also assisted in the development of food banking in the Philippines since 2007 both in providing technical assistance and sending aid. We have a standing memo of understanding with the Republic of the Philippines Department of Social Welfare & Development (DSDW).
