Fill the Fridge

Fill the Fridge is Greater Kansas City’s metro area original, largest and only perishable food drive.  For five consecutive days during the first week of September, 41 Action News teams up with Harvesters and Price Chopper to raise thousands of pounds of fresh food to benefit Harvesters large network of local food banks.

Fresh, perishable foods are well known to be essential to a healthy and well-balanced diet.
Unfortunately, those who are at risk of going hungry often don’t have the resources to purchase fresh
foods and food banks never have enough fresh foods, such as milk, for everyone who needs help. This is
why Fill the Fridge focuses on a list of nutrient-rich perishable foods that are in high demand at Kansas
City’s area food banks. The following are some items accepted during Fill the Fridge.

Orange juice
Bags of apples
Bags of oranges
Packaged lunch meats (not from deli)
Hot dogs

Those who would like to help but are unable to make it to one of the stores listed here, can donate
at the checkout counter of any Price Chopper in the Kansas City metro, or donate online with Harvesters
Thank you!
