Recurring Monthly Gift

Hunger knows no season.  Hunger finds children, families and seniors every day.  By making a recurring monthly gift, you can help us feed the hunger every day, all year long.

It costs so little to fill a child’s hungry stomach.  A modest monthly gift of $30 will provide healthy meals all year for 24 families.

DONATE TODAY by using the Donate Today button below.  Just click the “recurring Monthly Gift” box.

All recurring donors, no matter the level of your gift, will receive an invitation to our annual Donor Appreciation Breakfast.
