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).
