Drivers

Food Drive Host

Village Food Pantry

If your schedule won't allow you to volunteer on a regular basis, consider hosting a food drive! We'll be happy to offer ideas and help you prepare materials. A food drive can be as small as asking people to bring canned goods to a birthday party to as large as coordinating a neighborhood-wide drive.
