Harvest Drive Mission Statement

The mission of Harvest Drive, Inc. is to reduce the devastating effects of food insecurity in Broward County. We inspire and empower Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) students, civic organizations, community partners, and business partners. Together we provide non-perishable food and toiletries, as well as new and gently used essential clothing and household items to children and families who struggle to meet basic needs.

History of the Organization

The Harvest Drive was founded in August of 1992 at Country Isles Elementary School in Broward County. After more than 30 years, Harvest Drive’s reach and impact have grown exponentially. What began as a humble effort to teach students the importance of giving back to their community has become a relied upon resource. Each November more than 180 Broward County public schools, as well as many private schools, civic organizations, and business partners, join together to provide a week’s worth of groceries and a gift card or perishables to complete a Thanksgiving meal to more than 2250 families.

Harvest Drive Boutique is a lifeline to the families we serve.  Families referred by school social workers and other agencies are able to access gently worn and new clothing, shoes, books, toys, and household items such as bed linens, towels, and kitchen essentials.  These items allow people to have the clothing they need for school and work and the household items necessary to make a house a home.

The motto of the Harvest Drive is “Children Helping Children”. Our partnership with the Broward County School Board enables the Harvest Drive to impact tens of thousands of lives each year.  The Thanksgiving Drive, Food Box Packings, and Boutique are all opportunities for students and community members to develop leadership skills and give back where they live and work.
