It costs so little to fill a hungry tummy. A monthly gift of $10 will guarantee a hungry individual at least one healthy meal every day, every month, for the entire year.

A monthly gift of $30 will provide three meals a day, every month, for the entire year.

MATCHING GIFTS
Many companies match employee donations to nonprofit organizations that their employees support. Some companies even double or triple employee contributions. Ask your employer if they have a matching gift program. If they do not, encourage them to participate.

HOST A FOOD DRIVE

 

You can donate food to ICA any Monday through Friday between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm. Donations should be dropped off at our K-Tel location. Simply bring your food donation to the garage door and a volunteer will weigh your donation and give you a receipt. Food pick up is also available for Food Drives when your Food Drive collects at least 300 pounds.
