St. John’s is proud to be a part of the IHartHarvest Potato Project. This unique ministry is an organization of volunteers who come together to raise fresh produce, provided freely to local food pantries and the Greater Berks Food Bank, all for neighbors in need from Berks County – Hamburg, Fleetwood and Kutztown PA.

In the spring St. John’s assists with cutting of seed potatoes for planting and in the fall we help with harvesting potatoes in the field. Other “walk in” volunteer opportunities are available in the later summer and fall months to help with harvesting of sweet corn, onions, carrots and other crops.
