Each year, we dedicate the month of March to raise awareness about food access, to enhance our efforts to distribute healthy food and necessities, and to partner with local organizations to create a healthier community! We invite you to sponsor a March Fund & Food Drive with your employment group, faith community, block club or book club. Visit our Donate page for more information.
