FOOD DRIVES

KIDS CLUB

"FILL A BAG"

FOOD DRIVE

Can you help us feed kids? We give families with children an extra bag of food as part of our Kids Club Program. Your goal is to fill a grocery bag (or more than one) with kid-friendly foods, snacks and drinks. We distribute 100 every week to families with children!

If you're interested in filling and donating a Kids Club Bag, take a look at the shopping list for each bag displayed on this page. We also have a FAQ to help you.

In addition to our Kids Club Drive, we will accept donations of personal care products because they cannot be purchased with SNAP benefits. If you want to donate 12 or more of an item such as bar soap, shampoo, toothpaste, diapers or sanitary products for women, or, you want to lead a drive to collect them, please email us.

If you have a question or want more information about how you can participate in a food drive, please email Cathy Boskey.

No time to shop to donate food?

We'll put your financial contribution towards food purchases.

HOW MUCH FOOD DO WE Distribute?

 

We now provide groceries to approximately 900 families a month.

We distribute 4,000 grocery bags that add up to 60,000 pounds of food every month!

 

Every household receives a pre-packed grocery bag of shelf stable food. Large families receive more.

These bags include food for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

We also give bags of fresh produce, dairy, eggs, cheese and frozen chicken, fish, meat and vegetables.

 

Families with children receive an additional "Kids Club" bag of food that includes all the items on the list above and sometimes even more!

We also offer fresh bread, desserts, prepared foods and an extra full ingredient "Meal of the Month."
