A Food Drive Alternative

Providing care kit donations is a great family or team building activity that has a meaningful impact in our community. Whether you pack one care kit or 100, we will happily receive them at our warehouse. To drop-off donations, pull up to Garages 7-8 and ring the doorbell to have a member of our warehouse team assist.

We accept donations Monday through Friday from 12 PM to 4 PM.

Suggested items for the kits are available below, but you can adapt the lists as you see fit. Just place items in a sturdy bag and feel free to include a friendly note or child’s drawing.

Maternal Care Kits

These kits provide essential items during and after pregnancy for mom, baby and siblings. The kits are given directly to participants in our Fresh Rx: Nourishing Healthy Starts program, which is designed to improve health outcomes with nutrition and supportive services for food-insecure pregnant women and their families.

Students In Transition

This care kit addresses the unique needs of students displaced from their homes who may be living in shelters, cars, hotels or a variety of temporary living conditions. These students have diets high in sugar, salt and fat and low in protein and fiber. They need ready-to-eat foods that ideally don’t require cooking, even in a microwave.
