We need your help to feed all of the families in our care!
AFAC distributes over 80,000 pounds of food to more than 2,200 families every week. 40% of that food is donated to AFAC from food drives and grocery store donations.
The 26th Annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive is on Saturday, May 12. For more information, click here.

Food drives can be done on your own time within your own neighborhood, group of friends, sports team, faith community, workplace, etc. You can even ask your local grocery store if you can host a storefront food drive.
The food from your drive will help keep our costs down and provide us with the kinds of food we need. Food donations are tax deductible; donated food is valued at $1.70 per pound. Your food donations will be weighed and you will be asked to fill out a receipt at the time of drop-off. Food donations of 100 pounds or more will also receive a thank you letter by mail.
