Harvest Festivals, Christians thank God for all the
good things that come from the earth. Thanksgiving and
harvest ceremonies and celebrations for a successful
harvest are both worldwide and very ancient. We have
given thanks for successful harvests for many generations
and celebrate by singing, praying and decorating our
churches with baskets of fruit and food. In many schools
and in Churches, people bring in food and flowers from
home. The food is usually distributed to those in need
in the community.
produce harvested from the HELP
project is donated by Shades of Black to the senior
citizens at the harvest festival service in October
each year. Housebound individuals, local mosques, local
churches, pupils and their parents through the schools,
have all received boxes of fresh vegetables and flowers.
This hopefully will play an important and essential
role in the healthy eating, campaign and social inclusion.
