Food donations from our community greatly offset the operating costs of this weekly program. Without these donations, this program would not be possible. We gladly accept donations from individuals, businesses, volunteer groups and families.
These donations are a great way of giving back and involving your family or co-workers in learning about poverty and hunger right in our own back yard!

Cases of water, Gatorade, Powerade
Individual cereal boxes
Nutri-Grain cereal bars
Meals in a can (stew, chili, soup)

Organize a Food Drive
Food donations help offset our operating costs. Food drives from church groups, scout groups, groups at work, student groups and the office, etc, helps us tremendously. Even neighborhoods getting together are a great way to get to know one another and do good work!
If you would like to organize a food drive at your work place, community group, church, or neighborhood, you may contact Megan Moffett for additional questions or information.
Also, consider designating Cocoa Packs as the recipient of your United Way donations and your charity of choice on AmazonSmile!
