How to help the food bank

There are a few different ways you can be involved in getting this food to the people that need it.

Starting a food drive or donating food.

“We’ve had little kid who have instead having presents at their birthday parties, they have people bring food and they bring and donate the food to the food bank.”

And the food bank says it wants to make as little work for you as it can if you want to plan a drive. We will work with you if you have an idea or an interest that you specifically want to do around a fundraiser or a food drive, we’ll help you.

Donate cash.

Ten dollars can buy 150 pounds of food.

“You can go online to and always make on online gift but we also have different ways you can give monthly, we can set up a credit card gift so that each month at the same time, a certain amount is deducted. “

Or you can donate in someone’s honor.

Remember 90-year-old Marion Ballard from earlier?

A donor gave $10,000 in his name for being such a dedicated volunteer.

“Some other ways that people can help out, if you have a loved one that’s passed away, you can have people set up memorial gifts to honor them and people give gifts in honor of those people.”

Donate supplies:

“We’re always looking for vehicles, you know trucks to help us deliver the food and help to bring it back and forth to our agencies and to pick up at food drives.”

Donate your time:

“I just encourage people to volunteer, whether its with you family or with someone, classmates, some people from work and volunteer for a couple of hours in our volunteer room and see what its like and see how much of a difference you can make.”
