Food is our first name. Food is our first priority.
A note to our generous individual and community donors.
We can’t tell you enough how meaningful it is to receive food donations from the families, individuals, and non-food industry businesses in our communities. Whether it’s part of a family tradition or a special food drive that pulls neighbors or co-workers together, there’s something transformative in the act of collecting and giving food.
We also ask you to consider how you can make the most of your kindness. When you donate funds instead of food, individually or as part of a collective fundraising effort, your gift can go even further. Using your funds, we’re able to purchase food in much larger quantities and for wholesale prices not available to the public. This means your $10 donation with us buys a lot more than your $10 buys at the grocery store.
Especially during the pandemic, when we cannot accept food donations from individuals or community groups due to safety concerns, we ask that you consider donating funds instead. We also offer virtual food drives (see below) that let you and your community rise up to answer the challenge of hunger.
