Event: Harvesters: Sustainability & Giving Back
August 23, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am
Join BTG’s Green Business Network as we tour Harvesters from 8 to 10 a.m. on August 23. Harvesters is a regional food bank serving a 26-county area of northwestern Missouri and northeastern Kansas by providing food and related household products to more than 620 not-for-profit agencies including emergency food pantries, community kitchens, homeless shelters, children’s homes and others.
Join us as we tour their main facility located at 3801 Topping Avenue — looking through a sustainability lens at how Harvesters helps eliminate food waste and reallocate it to others in need through their food acquisition, storage, re-packaging, and distribution processes as well as energy efficiency improvements made to their facility. After the tour, we’ll spend an hour giving back by volunteering as a group at their facility.
This event is free for GBN members and $15 for non-members.
