The Importance of Food Drives

We receive substantial weekly food donations from Daily Bread & Second Harvest, that allow us to meet a reasonable minimum base to provide food to our members.  If we relied solely on those sources, we would be unable to provide the quantities of nutritious food we feel are sufficient to meet the needs of our members. As such, we work hard to develop and maintain partnerships with businesses and organizations and citizens to obtain additional supplies. 

Food drives are a great way to help make a positive impact in your community. By donating non-perishable items such as canned goods, pasta, and cereal, you are contributing to the fight against hunger. These donations not only help to alleviate hunger but also promote a sense of community and compassion.
