The Harvard Club of Naples
Invites you to
A Tour of the Harry Chapin Food Bank
and Discussion with Senior Leadership
Join fellow alumni for a tour of the Food Bank's impressive operations
and an informative discussion of its impact and its future
The Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida has been serving our region since 1983. It is by far the
largest hunger relief organization in the region and the sole representative of the nationwide Feeding America
network in our area. Food from the Food Bank feeds more than 250,000 people each month, directly
and in collaboration with more than 150 other local organizations, such as St. Matthew's House,
Meals of Hope, Our Daily Bread, Catholic Charities, Grace Place, and the Salvation Army.
The tour will begin with a brief visit to the Food Bank's Naples Facility, followed by a luxury bus ride
to its main facility in Fort Myers. You will tour the Fort Myers facility, and then participate in a
presentation and discussion with the Food Bank's senior leadership, including its President, Richard LeBer
(who is also President of the Harvard Club this year). You will then be returned by bus to
the starting point in Naples. For those who are interested, there will be an optional volunteer activity
in Naples, packing food for the Food Bank after we return.
During the pandemic, the Food Bank distributed almost 50 million pounds of food in Southwest Florida.
Since Hurricane Ian, they have been distributing twice their normal volume to families in crisis in some
of our hardest-hit communities, like Fort Myers Beach, Pine Island, Sanibel, Cape Coral, and parts of Naples.
Come see what it takes to care for so many, and engage in an exclusive and
thought-provoking discussion of its past and its future. You will be amazed.
