Caring for Friends

A Different Approach for Helping Those in Need

Caring for Friends seeks volunteers, donors, and others to support our mission at our location or yours.

Donate

For every $1 you donate, we can provide at least one meal. Learn about all the ways you can help others.

Volunteer

Caring for Friends has a variety of volunteer opportunities for individuals and groups of all sizes and ages.

Partner

By partnering with more than 200 community organizations, we get food into the hand of those who need it, together.

Spotlight On

Caring Bag Experience

Our Caring Bag Experience is a volunteer shift we bring to you to make an impact on the lives of our hungry neighbors. It’s great for team building, acting on corporate social responsibility goals, staff training, days of service, and more! American Heritage, pictured here, made a $10,000 donation to CFF and packed more than 1,000 snack bags for our clients throughout the region.
