Host a Food Drive

We go through cases  of nonperishable food items that make up a Buddy Bag each month. Food drives, especially those targeted at our highest cost items, help us significantly offset costs. Help feed hungry kids in our community by hosting a food drive at your work, school, community group, faith-based organization or neighborhood. You could even host a food drive at your Thanksgiving Dinner!
