We are always in need of frozen protein, canned items, as well as non-perishable foods. In addition, everyday pantry items—such as spices, herbs, and oils—are needed for us to keep a well-stocked commercial kitchen.Most Needed Items
In everything we do, we strive to provide not just food, but also friendship. Sometimes, this comes in the form of a caring note – a hand-written word of inspiration to brighten someone’s day. We are always in need of caring notes from caring people like you! Learn more about these notes and how you can get them to us. *NEW: We now have Coloring Caring Note Templates!
Groups can prepare these bags as part of a volunteer event in our location or theirs. Volunteers who help assemble snack bags will place 6-9 items in a bag for our homebound seniors, people living on the streets or in shelters, and children and their families in need.

Food and funds are down and every little bit of donations helps provide food and friendship to homebound, homeless, and hungry friends in our area. Now we offer different options to donate!
The resulting $10,000 can help us buy:
- feeds 700+ homebound seniors, veterans, and people with disabilities
- Every $10 helps provide five meals to a homebound neighbor in need – consider donating monthly
- 2,500 snack bags for people facing homelessness on the streets and in shelters
- Just $6 provides a day’s worth of meals to someone who might not have them otherwise
