THE FOOD

Each shipment of food we send to partner agencies is referred to as a “food bundle.” We want you to know what’s in our bundles, and below you can find a list. We have done extensive research on the foods we are supplying, and are proud that our bundles are filled with healthy, nutritious food including lean protein, fruit with no sugar added, low sodium vegetables, whole grains, and no high fructose corn syrup. Not only is our food healthy, but every item is shelf stable. We have the unique opportunity to drive down obesity and hunger simultaneously, and we plan to do just that. The food we’re purchasing is brand-new food straight off the shelves at Sysco not dented and expired cans.  We take our food purchases very seriously, and you simply won’t find junk in our bundles.

How much food is sent to each agency depends on you. We can only purchase food for an area when we have donations, and every penny counts. We’re purchasing food at wholesale prices from Sysco, so we’re taking your dollar farther; we’re getting the biggest bang for you buck.

KIDS AND SENIORS

All of our products are senior and kid friendly. We are well aware that a great number of the people receiving our food are 1st and 2nd graders living in single parent homes or are elderly. These kiddos have single moms who are still at work when our kids get home from school. We have made it easy for kids to grab something healthy without having to cook. Countless seniors are living alone, and don’t have access to a can opener or the strength to use the one they have.  We’ve taken that into consideration and our cans are easy open cans, and our chicken is cooked and ready to eat in aluminum packets. We want to stay in touch with the reality of the demographic we are here to help, and operating a can opener isn’t going to keep us from getting food to those who need it.
