Harvest for the Hungry is an interdenominational food pantry, sponsored by First Presbyterian, First United Methodist, Memorial United Methodist of Coal Grove, Quinn Chapel African, Methodist Episcopal, Resurrection Hope United Methodist, Saint Joseph Catholic, Saint Lawrence Catholic and Saint Paul Lutheran churches. It has operated since 1992, using contributions and donations to help Lawrence County families in need throughout the year.

In addition to its regular giveaways, each November, the pantry draws hundreds for its day-long Thanksgiving giveaway, in which volunteers pack boxes with enough items to provide a family with a full meal for the holiday.
