Watching the impacts of COVID-19 on families, the homeless and many others, our hearts became very heavy. We wanted to take all of our business knowledge and put our minds together to find a way to give back. As we began to pray, more ideas came to mind about how we can create a business that would open people's hearts and mind. We know we wanted to "Change the way people would give".
As we studied, we learned about the seasons that produce wheat and harvest. The name Harvest Wheat comes from the notion, that there is plenty of harvest out there, but there are some tares that may appear to prevent the wheat from harvesting. In other words, all of us face challenges and trials in our lives, but those are the very circumstances that will help each one of us produce a future harvest. Even in those experiences that we can help others overcome adversity. Essentially, the wheat and tare must grow together. Lastly, we believe using available data as a resource to identify the greatest need, helps guide in our development of food box solutions. It is all about getting real food to real people.
