Ways to Help This Holiday Season

One in four people in our community are at risk of hunger. You can help.

One in four people in our community are at risk of hunger. Your neighbor, co-worker, or the person in front of you at the grocery store might not share with you that they are hungry, but you can help them. Here are some ways you can make a difference:

FOOD DRIVE Host a food drive at your business, place of worship, neighborhood, favorite store or your children’s school. We will deliver empty barrels, pick up full barrels and send you a thank you letter with the weight of food you collected.

VIRTUAL FOOD DRIVE We are able to take your dollar and turn it into more food because we buy in large quantities. We give you ten choices of our most needed foods that you add to an online shopping cart and checkout. We can even create a drive just for your business or organization.

BUY A BAG Help raise money for the people served by the Food Bank and decorate your office, business or school for the holidays at the same time!  Buy A Bags are colorful (die-cut) paper bags and Christmas stockings. You collect donations for each bag or stocking - $1, $5, $10, etc. – you choose your donation price! Every $1 you collect allows the Food Bank to provide two nutritious meals for our neighbors in need.
