Food And In-Kind Donations

Kindness feeds the world.

We are all one bad month, week, or day away from needing emergency food services. And so, we strive to provide our customers with nutritious meals like we would our own families. We depend on and accept a wide variety of donations, but to promote long-term physical and mental wellness, healthier food options such as low-fat, low-sugar and reduced-sodium products are most appreciated.

We give 125 lbs of food per family per visit, and thanks to your generosity, we’re always giving out more than we receive.

Run a Food Drive
on our Behalf

Together we thrive, together we drive

Take part in empowering your community. We provide marketing materials as needed so that you can collect hotly-needed items and get the word out about hunger and food insecurity in our neighborhood. Together, we can change lives.
