Interfaith Outreach’s Prevent Hunger campaign is our annual drive to make real, significant progress toward ending food insecurity in our community by attacking hunger at its root causes – because it takes food and more to prevent hunger.
Invite kids or grandkids, community members and co-workers to participate in the Prevent Hunger campaign – helping us reach our fundraising goal and filling the food shelf with specific, most needed items. Let’s flood the food shelf with these most-needed items and show our neighbors we stand by them in this challenging time!
It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!
Like last year, we’re asking the community for very specific, targeted items for the food shelf. These items are most requested by food shelf guests and are more expensive for us to purchase. But all donated food and goods are welcome!
Most needed: Canned fruit, diced tomatoes, dried fruit (banana chips, raisins, etc.), kids cereal, pasta sauce, paper towels, shampoo, toilet paper
Drop off your group’s items at our one-day “Shop then Drop” drive-thru event!

If you choose to do a fund drive, please know that we can stretch your dollars to fill our shelves with 3 times more food than what you’d be able to buy at a grocery store, maximizing the return on investment for families.

Together, Interfaith Outreach and this community can provide, beyond our food shelf, additional services that tackle the root causes of hunger, including poverty, lack of employment and other challenges that put families and individuals in crisis. Of those who use the food shelf, 40% are children.
That’s why we must take complex problems—like hunger—and tackle their root causes.
The need for food is what brings people to the Interfaith Outreach food shelf. But often, hunger is a symptom of poverty, unemployment and other larger challenges that put families and individuals in crisis. That’s why our approach begins with assessing what’s working—and what’s not. Then we work together to develop a tailored response that not only addresses the immediate need for food but also provides life-changing wrap-around support that builds stability and helps strengthen individuals and their families.
Wrap-around services include job search support and employment training, as well as broad family support.
