Host a Food Drive

Thinking of hosting a food and fund drive?

Community volunteers are needed to hold food drives throughout the year.  Organize a drive within your place of work, school, church, club or with friends. This is a fun and very effective way to increase the supply of food and resources to help those in need! Food drives are welcome community events throughout the year. Your efforts make an enormous difference in the amount and variety of foods we are able to distribute to feed hungry families in the Brazosport community.

People may want to give money instead of food items... and that is wonderful! We encourage monetary donations as well. For every $1 donated, the pantry realizes $5.80 of purchasing power at the Houston Food Bank.

What kind of food should you collect?

 Canned meat, such as tuna and chicken packed in water
 Peanut Butter
 Canned Stews and pasta
 Dried Beans
 Canned Vegetables and Tomato products
 Rice, Pasta, Macaroni & Cheese
 Canned Fruit, preferably in light syrup or juice, natural applesauce
 Soups, especially with meat and/or beans
 Cereal and oatmeal

What else can you collect?

    Personal care items – toothpaste, toothbrushes, bars of soap, shampoo, razors, shaving cream
    Infant care – diapers in sizes 2-5 and wipes

Where to drop off your donations

Drop off donations at the pantry Tuesday or Thursday from 8:30 – 11:30 or other times by appointment.  You can also drop off your donations in the red collection barrels located at Freeport City Hall or the Lake Jackson Library.  In addition, items may be placed in the Red Barrel at the Lake Jackson H-E-B store (near register no. 1). If you need to make other arrangements, please give us a call.
