HOST A DONATION PARTY.
After the party, bring all the items you collected
When our food bank has a plethora of rice and beans but not enough fruit or vegetables, the money you donate can help us fill in the gaps of whatever food is missing.
FIND OUT IF YOUR COMPANY PARTICIPATES IN A MATCHING GIFT PROGRAM.
Some large corporations have matching gift programs, in which they’ll match a donation you make to the charity. If your employer offers such a program, use your company’s generosity to effectively double your donation.
MAKE A DONATION IN SOMEONE ELSE’S NAME.
Though tangible gifts for holidays and birthdays etc
IF YOU’RE AN AVID GARDENER, WE ACCEPT FRESH PRODUCE.
THINK OUTSIDE THE KITCHEN.
Although a food bank’s main focus is on feeding people, we do also accept cosmetics and hygiene products, baby food, nappies, cleaning supplies, toilet paper, soap, and toothpaste.
DON’T FORGET SPICES AND CONDIMENTS.
ARRANGE TO DONATE LEFTOVERS FROM YOUR PARTY.
We accept leftovers,
REMEMBER THAT PEOPLE ARE IN NEED YEAR-ROUND.
It’s great to help your local food bank around Harvest and Christmas, but we have a dearth in the summer months.
