Donors contribute millions of meals to Home Team Harvest

Meet some of the donors who helped Home Team Harvest raise 23.5 million meals in 2020.

For 20 years, Home Team Harvest has been raising food and support for Northwest Harvest, and providing meals for families across Washington state. 

The success of Home Team Harvest this year, and every year, is driven by the individual donors who contribute to the campaign. Whether it's one meal or thousands, each donation helps us get closer to our goal to make sure everyone in Washington has enough to eat.

In 2020, the need was greater than ever, and so was the goal. Home Team Harvest aimed to raise 20 million meals to meet an unprecedented need with the number of Washingtonians struggling to put food on the table doubling during the COVID-19 crisis. 

Thanks to the generous giving of sponsors and individual donors, Home Team Harvest raised more than 23.5 million meals for Northwest Harvest. 

Meet just a few of the donors who have contributed to Home Team Harvest:
