Give Food for the Holidays
Partner with The Food Bank to share food and bring hope! The Food Bank hopes to collect enough food and funds this holiday season to provide 15 million meals for those in need. Help us reach our goal by Dec. 31 and give Food for the Holidays!
There are a lot of ways to help:
Just $10 will provide meals for 110 people in need.
$50 will provide 750 pounds of food for The Food Bank’s partner agencies.
$100 will provide 275 families of four with one meal. Donate now.
We have an outstanding day-long event, “One for One Holiday Food Drive” coming up Wednesday, Dec. 18, at Broadway and Providence streets in Columbia. Drop by with food or money as we try to raise 1 million pounds of food in one day! Click the flyer for details…
