Financial contributions – both of the individual and corporate variety – allow us to continue expanding our mission to reach underserved populations and locations. You may choose to give every month or only when your budget allows. Every donation is a gift that we value and every dollar makes a difference. For every $1 received, we can distribute 6 meals to individuals in need.
You may also want to consider donating in several other ways. Consider building a legacy for future giving by including the Food Bank in your estate planning process. Perhaps you wish to honor or remember someone special with a gift to the Food Bank in his or her name. We will send a congratulatory letter to the honoree or a memorial letter to the next of kin.
