Rachael, Volunteer
Volunteering at City Harvest has been an absolute lifeline - every day is different and exciting, and made all the more enjoyable knowing how much of an impact it’s having on the people who need it.
Josh, Volunteer
I love coming here, seeing people with smiley faces and positive attitudes. It gives me a great boost to know that I’m doing something good for society!
Lali, Volunteer
City Harvest is basically therapy. The positivity is infectious and it’s a place to escape to and feel like you’re doing good. I don’t know what I would have done without City Harvest!
