Meal Kits

Return to Donate Food page


Are you looking for a way to involve a group in a hands-on, impactful project? The Pantry needs your help! We are looking for organizations willing to support our guests with healthy meal options and basic daily living needs.

Wondering What to Do?

1

Get a few individuals to manage a Meal Kit Food Drive event and set a packing date.

2

Hold a Food Drive for donations in the theme of one of our Meal Kits. Create a competition to see who can get their needed items first!

3

Get your company to kick in the funds to purchase the items you are short on.

4

Ask a store to donate paper or plastic bags to pack the kits into or buy reusable bags. Or, have everyone donate bags from all their extras at home!

5

Gather all your items and create an assembly line.

6

Pack Meal Kit bags until you run out of items to make a full set (just bring the leftovers in and we’ll stock our shelves with those).

7

Deliver them to the Pantry and know that you helped make a difference in your community!
