Food Drive for our Help Shelf


Cause Areas


It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.


Help our residents have enough to eat! Many people living in our apartments have a tough time meeting all of their basic expenses. Sometimes they are forced to decide between paying for rent, food, or medical costs.

Coordinate a food drive with your coworkers, worship community, friends or neighbors. By collecting donations to stock our small emergency food shelves, you are giving our residents a crucial source of nutrition and comfort when money runs short. We need healthful, nonperishable items such as:

  • Rice
  • Pasta and spaghetti sauce
  • Ramen noodles
  • Hearty soups and stews
  • Canned meals (ravioli, chili, pork and beans, chow mein)
  • Canned meat (tuna, Spam, chicken)
  • Canned vegetables (beans, corn, potatoes)
  • Canned fruit
  • Fruit juice
  • Crackers
  • Peanut butter and jelly
  • Microwaveable instant oatmeal
  • Pancake mix (mix-with-water) and syrup
  • Boxed potatoes and gravy
  • Boxed macaroni and cheese (instant is best!)
Donations can either be dropped off or we can arrange for pick-up of larger quanitites of donations.
