Meeting the Ongoing Challenge

Common Cupboard has been facing a regular shortage of can goods. In the past we have gotten most of these through Second Harvest.  However during the past several months we have seen a significant drop in the availability of the kinds of food that we need. Last year we experienced this just during June and July.  We have been in this drought of can goods from Second Harvest for at least 3 months so far and it shows no sign of letting up. 

We are looking for new resources for these kinds of items.  We need your help to meet this need.  We have a plan to address this long term, but it requires 3 families to step up and be willing to organize volunteers for one day food drives at local grocery stores once per quarter. 

Can you help in one of 3 ways? – (1) Ask your friends for groceries and bring them down to the cupboard. This will help us with our immediate need.  (2) Would your family or small group step up to organize a day long food drive once a quarter? Or (3) can you give to our virtual food drive by clicking here. You can even chose to automatically give every month if you chose.

Thank you for your help.
