Bakersfield family selling organic produce to raise money for families with pediatric issues

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A Bakersfield family is hoping to put more organic food on the table while helping to raise money for families with pediatric issues. 

The program, started by Belinda and Scotts Pursel, is known as Hopeful Harvest. 

For only $30 the community can buy a box of organic produce and part of the proceeds will go towards the Pursel's nonprofit, Supporting Overwhelming Situations

"People don't have time to go to the farmers market to get things, so it's a way for us to provide fresh, healthy choices delivered to you," said Scott Pursel. 

The Pursel's dealt with their own pediatric issue when their 17-month-old daughter was diagnosed with leukemia. 

"That moment I decided I wanted to help others and extend my hand out to others going through this," said Belinda Pursel. 

Boxes can be delivered to both homes or offices every week on Friday and Saturday.
