Will you be our Hero?

Businesses and organizations – of ALL sizes – are leading by example in their effort to alleviate hunger. Through our HUNGER HERO Program, St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance recognizes and honors organizations making an extraordinary impact in our community through gifts of volunteer time, food drives, and cash donations.

As partners in our mission, participants have the opportunity to broaden their impact on hunger by concentrating their efforts in the Food Bank’s most critical areas of need.

Committed volunteers play a significant and vital role at St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance. The hours dedicated to packing Emergency Food Boxes, sorting through incoming donations, packaging produce, and distributing food to clients are ideal team-building opportunities; however, these tasks are also mission-critical and help put food directly in the hands of those who need it most.

HH-fooddrives-web

Food received through food drives provides a wide assortment of high quality products that are appreciated by our clients. Hosting a food drive on behalf of St. Mary’s Food Bank allows participants to create community goodwill as they gather essential items for inclusion in emergency food boxes.

HH-donations-web

Our high-volume purchasing power and operating efficiency allows us to convert $1 into 7 meals. In addition, cash gives us the flexibility to obtain foods throughout the year that are typically available only on seasonal or regional basis.

Join us and become part of the solution.
