Mission Statement

Just Harvest educates, empowers and mobilizes people to eliminate hunger, poverty, and economic injustice in our communities by: influencing public policy, engaging in advocacy, and connecting people to public benefits.

Description

Our Program Areas:
ADVOCATING FOR CHANGE: We advocate for policies at the federal, state, county, and local level that alleviate hunger and poverty in our region. Issues that we work on include: Protecting nutrition programs such as SNAP, fair tax policies, and addressing food deserts.

CONNECTING PEOPLE TO BENEFITS

SNAP Makes a Difference: SNAP is the critical anti-hunger and anti-poverty safety net benefit, helping 1.8 million Pennsylvanians and 47 million nationwide. For 7 years, Just Harvest has provided assistance to help thousands of low-income households apply for benefits.

Case Advocacy: We advocate for the fair treatment of clients as they navigate safety-net bureaucracies. Whether it is a food stamp participant who has been denied benefits unfairly, or a mother on welfare seeking a work exemption because of illness, we are here to help clients get what they need.

Fresh Access: The Fresh Access program fights hunger by improving access to nutritious food at farmers markets across the Pittsburgh area.

Money in Your Pocket Tax Campaign: As a lead partner in the United Way of Allegheny County’s Money in Your Pocket Coalition - Just Harvest provides free, IRS-certified income tax preparation for low-income tax clients at four Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Sites in Allegheny County.
