Food4Tots

Making sure our smallest neighbors have food.

Can you imagine a baby at a food bank? We can. Each month, we see more than 250 of our tiniest, most adorable neighbors. Food4Tots makes it possible for us to feed every single one of them.

We’re looking for church congregations, businesses, and any group that is willing to step up to be a Food4Tots sponsor. Each sponsor picks one month and hosts a baby food drive with the goal of collecting 1,000 jars of baby food or $1,000.

Become a local super hero! Become a Food4Tots sponsor and help us get the baby food our littlest neighbors need.
