Behind The Scenes At Harvesters


To feed more than 66,000 people every week Harvesters needs an advanced and organized warehouse operation to collect and distribute all this food to over 26 counties.

On Wednesday's Up to Date, Harvesters retiring CEO Karen Haren takes us through the process that brings food donated by area residents and businesses to the tables of our neighbors in need.

We also examine how the local food bank uses its volunteers, donations and partnerships to keep the Kansas City community fed.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9, my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers.
