Did you know?
Over the years numerous donations were made by business community’s, entrepreneurs, schools, consumers, local communities and various organizations, for which we are very grateful. We also receive and redistribute unsaleable food and grocery items from farmers, manufacturers and retailers. This includes product that is out of specification, close to date code, has incorrect labeling or damaged packaging as well as excess stock and deleted lines.
Over the last couple of years, we have been able to increase both the number and size of the donations in kind, as well as the financial support given to us, so that we are in a better position to achieve our goals.
Unfortunately we still need your help. We have many fantastic donors that provide us with fresh food on a weekly basis, but we are in need of non-perishable food as well. With these donations, we are able to build up a stock of non-perishable food. This enables us to add non-perishable healthy food to the food packages of our clients.
