For every donation of $30 or more the Food Bank will send a special holiday card, featuring an image by local photographer Ginny Dexter, to a loved one you designate to let them know a generous donation has been made in their honor. All donations will help bring nutritious food to our neighbors in need this holiday season. It is a chance to give back to our community while letting someone know you were thinking of them.   


Requests for emergency food assistance are particularity high during the holiday season and Food for People’s programs continue to operate at maximum capacity, serving the largest number of community members that the food bank’s resources can handle. A large majority of the individuals served are children and seniors. We know that many of the families requesting help have jobs, but don’t earn enough to keep up with the rising cost of living, much less the stress the holidays can put on precious little spending money. Food for People provides food assistance when people fall on hard times but the organization cannot respond effectively when food supplies run low. That’s why donations gathered during the holidays are so important for helping struggling households make it through the winter season.
