Stan Curtis wants to inspire and empower people to help those who can’t help themselves.
In December of 1986, Curtis experienced a life changing moment. While standing in a cafeteria line, he imagined workers delivering food that would otherwise go to waste and delivering it to those in need.
Curtis founded Kentucky Harvest and USA Harvest to collect leftover food from restaurants and groceries and deliver them to shelters and soup kitchens across the country. Curtis sees Kentucky Harvest as an opportunity both for those who need help and those who want to help.
His work has been honored by Dr. Norman Vincent Peale and he received the President’s Volunteer Action Award from President Bill Clinton.
