HOST A FOOD & FUND DRIVE

Food & Fund drives play a huge role in helping us to feed thousands of people each year! They are easy and fun and can be as simple as a bake sale or as extravagant as a fancy dinner party with friends.  They are a great way for the local community to join our mission in alleviating hunger for our friends and neighbors. Businesses or individuals can get involved!
