When you share food with those who are struggling, you bring hope for a brighter tomorrow. Whether you are donating a dollar or dropping off excess produce from your garden, every gift makes a difference.
We rely heavily on donors and volunteers to operate efficiently. Of our allocations, 97% goes directly toward acquisition and distribution of food, with 3% going toward fundraising and administration.
Because of our affiliation with Feeding America, every dollar donated is the equivalent of 15 pounds of food, or 12.5 meals. With every $1 donated, we have the purchasing power of $21 worth of groceries.
Volunteers are critical to our operation, saving us more than $2 million a year in avoided labor costs.
