BUDDY BAg DeliverY
Delivery is a critical piece of getting Buddy Bags into the hands of kids who need them. Are you able to help during the 2018-2019 school year? Needs: Volunteers to deliver Buddy Bags to four Columbus area schools. We meet at FMF to load the truck at 9:00 am and return to FMF at approximately 11:00 am.
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!
