Did you know that US residents throw away about 100 billion pounds of food every year – nearly 3,000 pounds per second, enough to feed 60 million people? And, sadly we have individuals and families in our community who go hungry. Make a commitment now and help us address this problem.
Food is needed all year long. Without the basic ingredients we would be unable to cook and serve hot meals. That is why in order to continue feeding the hungry; we will purchase food ingredients when necessary. While we are grateful to many agencies and businesses for their contributions, the reality is that it is not enough to satisfy the increasing demand. That is why we must rely on the generous contributions of members in our community.
Consider donating food……
A good rule of thumb when considering making a food donation is to ask yourself if you would eat it, feed it to your children, or serve it to your Mom. If your answer is yes –please know we will gladly accept it with a grateful heart and open arms.
