Donating to the Interfaith Food Bank
You can support hunger relief in Amador County today, by donating anything that your budget allows, whether it is food or funds, or by giving at the grocery store where you shop. You have options when it comes to helping the Interfaith Food Bank serve the community.
“If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.”
The Interfaith Food Bank of Amador County depends on people just like you. As a 100% community-supported organization receiving no government funding of any kind, our need for donations is constant because the need to feed our community’s hungry never ends.
Donating Dollars S-T-R-E-T-C-H
Cash donations come in all shapes and sizes, and here is why every dollar counts: With cash donations, we are able to make purchases at wholesale pricing. This means that with a donation of just $5, we can buy FOUR jars of peanut butter for the same amount it would cost to purchase ONE jar at average retail prices. Don’t forget: Your monetary donation to the Interfaith Food Bank is tax-deductible and only takes a moment. Whether you can make a one-time donation or would like to contribute regularly, there is no better time than right now.
Donating Food (is easy)!
Donating Food to the Interfaith Food Bank is simple, and while certain items are always needed, we take almost all donated food that is sealed, intact, and not expired. When you grocery shop, just toss a few extra items into the cart! Please see the list below for our “most needed” items:
- boxed meals (Hamburger Helper, macaroni and cheese, Rice-a-Roni, etc.)
- breakfast cereal
- canned chili, soups, stews, ravioli
- canned tuna, fruits, and vegetables
- soups and sauces
- infant formula and diapers
- pet food
- …and PAPER BAGS
Donate from your garden!
Our Plant-a-Row Program means that your backyard garden can help feed the county’s hungry. By simply planting an extra row or a few extra plants in your garden, you can help put nutritious, fresh food on the tables of Amador County’s hungry families. Simply bring your seasonally harvested food to the food bank as you pick. This is a perfect way for property owners with home gardens or orchards to donate a bushel or basket to the Interfaith Food Bank. Any amount is welcome!
