Harvest Central Kitchen
Since 2003, Harvest Central Kitchen has been preparing meals each Saturday for distribution at Ueno Park and bentos for other outreach programs.
We provide perishable and non-perishable foods through direct pickup, food boxes and mobile pantrys.
Food banking is our core activity. We collect food from a wide variety of sources and distribute it directly to those in need as well as the agencies that serve them. We continue our work to create a “food life-line” and “food safety-net” to make this work possible.
Advocacy & Development
One of the ways we are creating a food safety-net is through promoting food bank development. Our work includes public speaking, holding symposiums, conducting research, and participating in study sessions.
