Leaning into the storm

With hurricane season upon us, we know the importance of preparing for any storm. Stocking up on shelf-stable foods, water, and batteries can help us navigate power outages and other effects brought on by inclement weather. Lend support to our neighbors in need in this time of preparation.

Donate Food. Help End Hunger

If you’d like to give non-perishable food items, host a food drive and donate essential items directly to partner food pantries across our 10-county reach. By boosting our efforts with food drives, you create more opportunities to put meals on people’s tables.

Maximize Your Impact

Hosting a virtual food drive for your team is ideal for those who lack the storage, equipment or staff to host a traditional drive at their organization or business. Due to our incredible partnerships with retailers and grocers, we are able to provide an exponential amount of meals for every $1 that is donated and multiply your gifts many times over. This expedites food distribution directly into homes that need our help.
