Donations via Community Food Drives
Each year The Food Basket is blessed to have companies, local businesses, groups and individuals lead food drives to benefit the pantry. Some are annual and some are one-time events. In-kind food personal care and household donations are welcomed.
The Brazosport community also participates in several annual drives to benefit The Food Basket and other local pantries. Examples include Brazoria County Fair “Food Pantry” Day (October), Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive (May), Souper Bowl of Caring (January/ February and Share Your Holidays (December). Check our Facebook Page for upcoming events.
How to Get Donations to the Pantry
Drop donations at The Food Basket (One Wesley Drive, Clute) Tuesdays or Saturdays from 8:00am – 10:00am or at other times by appointment. If you need to make arrangements, give us a call at (979) 388-0024.
Purchase hunger bags from Kroger (Clute store). Your donation will be delivered directly to the pantry!
Donate as part of Your Next Hands-on Mission Project
We believe in teaching the next generation to serve. If your group would like to purchase bulk rice or beans and package into individual-size packages for our clients, please let us know. This is a wonderful way to incorporate service into your next event. We will be happy to share our experience to insure its success.
The Valuable Donation of Your Time
During a typical week, The Food Basket utilizes 60 plus volunteers. Volunteers can work set hours weekly or monthly or can volunteer based on their availability. We also need individuals and groups who work behind the scenes, one time and ongoing. If you have a heart for helping those in need of food, please contact us or visit our Volunteer Page.
Other Wonderful Donations
Do you have a fruit tree or garden? 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 or garden, 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.
