Support the Community Food Shelf

Help support food equity

Your gift will help provide healthy meals to 1,000+ households each month. 100% of donations go directly to food distribution to the community. 

Below are some ways you can support NorthPoint’s Community Food Shelf:

Financial gifts

Cash donations allow us to purchase items that can’t be donated, such as milk, eggs and meat; but most importantly, each dollar donated has at least 3 times the buying power because we can buy food at bulk prices. A $10 donation can provide enough food for 25 meals.

Host a Food & Fund Drive

A Food & Fund Drive is a great way for organizations and groups to contribute positively to our community! Whether you host a traditional food drive or sponsor a virtual one, everyone can help. Download a Food Drive Toolkit to help you plan. NorthPoint relies on food donations from individuals, and even local gardeners to help stock our food shelf. Grocery items most needed right now are canned tuna, peanut butter and jelly as well as non-food items like personal hygiene products.
