Making Outreach Food Bags

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Willis Dady Homeless Services

  • 13 people are interested

Having outreach food bags to hand out to clients is extremely helpful. These can be distributed to clients in a number of ways:

  1. Our Street Outreach Team can carry these bags with them to hand out to clients who are sleeping outside of somewhere else not meant for habitation. These clients often have limited access to food, so having some on hand is very helpful for our team.
  2. We also try to keep non-perishable food in the donation room of our shelter. This food can be handed out to clients in our shelter who are waiting for a food stamp card to arrive or have mobility issues and cannot get to a community food pantry. Outreach clients or other community members also visit our shelter for supplies as they learn to navigate local resources and get connected to a case manager.

To help with this need we are looking for donors to assemble Outreach Food Bags to be dropped off at our shelter (1247 4th Ave SE). Food bags should include a Ziploc Bag with a combination of the following:

  • Protein or granola bars
  • Beef jerky
  • Trail mix
  • Cracker packs
  • Fruit snacks
  • Cans or packets of chicken or tuna

Please reach out to our Volunteer and Operations Coordinator at 319-362-7555 or sierra@willisdady.org with any questions!
