The reach of God is present in the services Kings Harvest provides. As stated by Anne McVey, "God loves every person that passes through our doors, no matter how broken." God's love is readily apparent by the strong community support and number of volunteers.

The services include, but not limited to, the serving of hot meals, maintaining a food bank, shelter for homeless men and women in the winter, shelter for up to 10 single mothers with children are available year round, and pet assistance for the poor and homeless (Food, spay/neutering and housing when King's Harvest is sheltering the owners). King's Harvest is hoping to expand their services to reach more people in need.
