It all began with a simple concept: ensuring that individuals facing food insecurity get the healthy produce they need for a nutritious diet and that local produce would not go to waste. This goal prompted Rolling Harvest Food Rescue’s founder and executive director, Cathy Snyder, to initiate the innovative organization back in 2010.
The Bucks County Courier Times and The Intelligencer selected Rolling Harvest Food Rescue as one of this year’s 10 Good-Doers finalists. The 10 nonprofit organizations do work to support those in need and to strengthen the community for all of us. The winning organizations will be given the opportunity to work with the newspapers’ team of videographers and video storytellers, and produce a three-minute Public Service Announcement (PSA). In November, the newspapers invited nominations of nonprofit organizations for the 2016 Good-Doers Awards and received more than 100 nominations for 44 individual organizations.
