Family Pathways Food and Fund Drive

Family Pathways exists to help people – it’s what we do. We specialize in being there to help people experiencing personal challenges, surviving recessions, through pandemics and everyday crises alike. But this work doesn’t happen without YOU. You are part of the backbone of this community, and we’re asking you to partner with us to support our neighbors in need.

More than 20,000 of our neighbors experience food insecurity, and free groceries help them put food on the table when times are tough. Will YOU help us prepare for the months to come by collecting non-perishable food items and financial donations? Family Pathways’ food access services including 9 food shelves, mobile pantry, doorstep food delivery for seniors, school backpack programs, and more.

Often at this time of year – businesses, churches, and civic organizations – increase their charitable giving. Food Drives are often a part of these efforts. Here are some ways your organization can get involved:

  • Host a Virtual Food Drive
  • Host a traditional Food & Fund Drive
  • Volunteer for a Small Group Project
  • Get the Word Out that Help is Available

We will work with you to promote your drive or project – from promo materials to social media to press releases, we will help to get the word out. We’ve included a Food & Fund Drive 101 in this packet to get you started on whichever activity you choose. You can find all this information and register your drive at

Together, with you by our side, we will provide not only actual food to families this holiday season but also a feeling of relief…of peace…of hope.
