THE WOODLANDS, TX -- The Abundant Harvest feeds the body, nourishes the soul, and transforms the community. Doubling as a brick and mortar space, the nonprofit sells delicious meals to customers as well as feeds community members in need. In response to the pandemic, they currently feed more than eight hundred families every week through their food pantry.

As part of St. Isidore Episcopal, a 4-year-old church community in Spring, Abundant Harvest works to meet the physical needs of individuals as well as the spiritual. Families can sign up to receive one custom food package a week, which will be safely delivered to their car. Special items for those with babies, pets, or dietary restrictions are accommodated.

“This building was not based on the traditional charitable model where you do good, and then ask people for money or charitable donations to support that good,” said Executive Director, Jeremy L. Hall. “It's actually an economic engine, providing economic value to the community,” he said.

Every meal bought from The Abundant Harvest Kitchen feeds a local family. The organization also provides jobs, training, and connects individuals to needed resources, such as veteran services, legal aid, free or reduced cost programs, behavioral health clinics, and homeless prevention. Entrepreneurs or chefs looking for a commercial kitchen are welcome to use theirs, and groups in search of a place to host events are able to rent out the space.

In 2020 alone, The Abundant Harvest:
• Served 10,111 free meals to our community including at-risk youth and veterans
• Helped 29,000+ households receive resources including food, hot meals, holiday assistance, and pastoral care
• Distributed 1,251,187 pounds of food to families in our community
• Logged 31,324 volunteer hours given to transform our community

“We run on volunteer horsepower,” Hall said, and opportunities to serve are plenty. Areas of need include packaging and delivering food, hosting the coffee shop, assisting with the food pantry, and cooking meals. Various time slots throughout the week make it easy to find an option that fits any schedule. Click here for more volunteer info!
