Donate Food

The food industry makes generous donations to us, but certain important foods are often in short supply. You can help fill that gap and make a difference in the lives of hungry people. Your efforts to organize and conduct a food drive will provide nutritious, high-quality food for your neighbors in need.

Host a Food Drive

Food drives are extremely important to us and they people we serve.
