FUND & FOOD DRIVES
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
As a member of the Florida Disaster Relief Team, our top priority in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, will be to get food, water and other essentials to those in need.
Please help our efforts by hosting a Fund and Food Drive – Fund and Food Drive Goal – raise money and collect, non-perishable food. Every $1 raised, Bread of the Mighty can provide up to (7) meals. 1.3 pounds of food collected provides one meal to someone in need.
Now that the school year is underway, Bread of the Mighty is busy stocking 7 school pantries monthly with produce, meat, dairy, dry goods and hygiene essentials all while providing food to our 160+ agency partners Monday through Friday as they then distributed to those in need throughout our five county service area ~ Alachua, Dixie, Gilchrist, Lafayette and Levy.
Whether you join us in celebrating 30 years of serving the community with a Fund and Food Drive, or assist us during the holidays - your support is always needed and appreciated.
