Hands on Mission
We believe in teaching the next generation to serve and learning that in serving one gets as much or more than those served. If your group would like to purchase bulk rice or beans and package into smaller packages for distribution please let us know. We will be happy to share our experience with this type of event to insure its success.
Donation of Time
The Food Basket needs upwards of 60 volunteers each week to perform the duties required. Volunteers can work standard hours weekly or monthly. Volunteers can also work based on their availability. We also need individuals who work behind the scenes when they have time. If you have a heart for helping those in need of food, please contact us or see our Volunteer Page.
Other Wonderful Donations
Do you have extra produce in your garden? Veggies like zucchini and other summer squash, cucumbers, okra, tomatoes, beans and many others are great producers in our local gardens. Fruits such as cantaloupe and other melons are a healthy and welcome treat. Fresh herbs are a wonderful benefit for families. Basil, chives,cilantro, oregano, and parsley are just a few delicious and hardy herbs grown in our area.
Do you have a fruit tree in your yard? Many fruit trees, like satsuma orange, lemon, avocado, grapefruit, peach, and others may produce more than you can use at harvest time. Consider sharing your bounty. If you don't have a fruit tree, consider planting one or two as a family project with a dedicated purpose - sharing with the hungry. Your family will be blessed by the effort.
