Holiday memories are made around the dinner table. Baking holiday treats with loved ones, tasting the favorite dish you have only once a year, the fragrance of cinnamon and spice in the kitchen. But most importantly, connecting with friends and family over a special holiday meal. Food brings us together; food helps make lasting memories.
However, for families facing hunger in our region, holiday meals might not feel as special. But you can help. We want all families to enjoy time together during the holidays and to gather over a very special meal. By supporting our annual Holiday Campaign, you can help families find joy this holiday season.
Please consider making a personal donation or a corporate gift. $1 = 4 meals
Encourage employees to give afew dollars from each pay, which can make a lasting impact.
Contact Debra Hagarty at 330.535.6900 to learn ways you can support the Foodbank through deferred gifts.
