Need a pickup?
If you have 100 or more meals, email our Food Drive Manager to schedule a pick-up. Pick-ups are scheduled based on the availability of our staff, drivers, and vehicles. We will try to accommodate your request to the best of our ability, but specific date and time requests cannot be guaranteed. Please note we can only pick up donations of 100 or more meals.

Thank you for being part of our family and helping to bring meals to those who need them most.
