Food Baskets for Families
Many of the children and families we serve are not only dealing with mental health issues that affect their family’s dynamic and individual well-being, but they’re also dealing with the stress of how they’re going to put food on the table due to the severe lack of resources. By providing a basket (or grocery bag) of nonperishable food items along with a grocery store gift card, you will help alleviate daily stressors for families and create joy for them as they spend time preparing and sharing meals together.
- Provide a food basket for a family of 4. Non-perishable food items (e.g.: rice, beans, canned vegetables, boxed potatoes) and a gift certificate to a local grocery store to purchase a turkey and other perishable items.
