Abundant Harvest Kitchen... Feeding the Body, Nourishing the Soul, Transforming the Community
he Abundant Harvest Kitchen is a non-profit food kitchen and food pantry with the mission to create and support experiences around the table that feed the body, nourish the soul, and transform the food insecure community in Montgomery County. St. Isidore Episcopal Church launched The Abundant Harvest Food Truck in 2017 and opened The Abundant Harvest Kitchen at 24803 Oakhurst Drive (Rayford and 45) in March of 2020 just as the coronavirus pandemic hit Texas. Jeremy Hall is their new Executive Director. Year-to-date the Abundant Harvest Kitchen has served more than 6,600 meals and given away more than 750,000 pounds of food. Currently the Abundant Harvest Kitchen is feeding more than 500 families in the community each week residing
in South Montgomery County and Spring neighborhoods through the Kitchen site at St. Isidore Episcopal Church. In addition, once every week groceries are distributed to over 200 families in New Caney through the mobile food pantry in partnership with the Texas Familias Council and the Montgomery County Food Bank to those suffering from food shortage and lost income from the pandemic. The drive through pantry is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays 10:00am-3:00pm. Prepared meals are also donated to the Kitchen on site by appointment. To make an appointment visit HarvestKitchen.org/food-pantry.
Meals to Go are offered for purchase every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 4:00pm-6:00pm. Each meal purchased allows another meal to be donated to a family in need. Hot meals have included Pulled Pork with Macaroni and Cheese, Southern Tomato Pie, and Stuffed Hatch Chili. Frozen meals may also be purchased for dining at home later or to share with another family in need.
