Since Nov 2016, Food For Neighbors has collected over 112,300 pounds of food. The nonprofit now has over 1,200 households donating red bags filled with shelf-stable foods plus more than 650 drivers and volunteers variously participating in the food collection and sorting events. Thanks to these and other generous community members, Food For Neighbors also purchases additional food when supplies run low in between Red Bag Program events, and it provides grocery gift cards for students experiencing the gravest food insecurity.
Food For Neighbors welcomes donations of food, volunteer services and support, and financial contributions to continue its important mission of ending child hunger by raising awareness and community involvement. There are many ways for businesses, service organizations, foundations, and individuals to become involved. For those who are unable to shop or who are currently outside of the existing but growing service area, there’s even an option to donate via a Virtual Red Bag Program.
