MISSION & HISTORY.
Launched in 2018, Heart to Harvest is a 501(c)(3) charity organization with the original mission of preserving New Jersey’s family farms by educating the. public on the importance of supporting local farmers, raising awareness on the struggles they face and helping to keep farming families on their land, inspiring agricultural careers for future generations. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the board is updating its mission to create a fund that can help restaurants reopen for dine in service as well as farms that have been struggling while their restaurant clients have been closed.
Our goal is to help as many restaurateurs reopen for dine-in service as possible. Heart to Harvest pledges to maintain minimal overhead and to be transparent throughout the process. The Board of Advisors are unpaid and many individuals and entities have donated services or reduced fees to launch this initiative.
“In my more than two decades in the restaurant and hospitality industries, we have never seen a more daunting set of challenges. Our goal is to help save as many of our cherished dining spots as possible.”
