Give Where You Live
Start a Donating Group
Start a group of donating families and “give where you live!”
Through your network of friends, family, community or faith-based group, gather 4 or more families, and join our network of “givers” to help struggling families in your own community by providing them with a monthly box of basic grocery staples.
We’ll instruct you (below) on how to identify a neighborhood food pantry that serves families in need in your community so you can link your group to that food pantry. The pantry will make sure a families in need in your own backyard will get your packed boxes.
Each family in your group will shop for and pack a bag (or box) of groceries each month from with items your local food pantry requests. Bags/boxes are dropped off at the group leader’s home or office. The group leader then delivers the grocery bags/boxes to the local food pantry you have linked to.
To find a local food pantry to donate your boxes to we suggest you google “food pantry” along with your zip code, and contact the food pantry nearest you. We suggest you ask the pantry what their greatest needs are so that you can advise your group on what to purchase and share with the pantry that you will be doing this on a regular basis.
