Donate Food

We deliver 8400 meals per week to children in need around the community. That means we need as many food items as we can get! Donations make a difference. Food donations can be dropped off anytime during our office hours at our program center. We’re located at 900 Saint John Street in North Casper. Click here for a list of food items we're most in need of.

Become a Food Drop Site

Donation drop site locations are essential to the success of our weekend food bag program. Not only do we receive continual intake of non-perishable food items, but it is also a great opportunity for the community to become more aware of our mission and what we stand for.
