Our annual Fall Food Drive starts Saturday, September 23 at Traverse City Tom’s and Oleson’s stores. Donate non-perishable food or cash in the stores, or donate online. Monetary donations allow us to purchase fresh items like eggs, milk, meats and produce.

The community need for food assistance has increased dramatically. Visits to our food pantry are up 71% this year. We need your help!

Come see us in stores, or click to donate:

We are locally funded, and locally focused. What we give local families in need is a direct result of the generosity of our community. Thank you.
