We realized our families need more than just food and established many supplemental programs over the years

Year-Round Programs

Each Monday morning, we receive food donations from the Urbana Giant

Every fourth Sunday of each month, we collect donated household goods in the Urbana Highlands

We receive monthly donations of food from local businesses, neighbors, and 24 churches

Every day, our supporters can donate goods in our grocery cart located at the Starbucks entrance of the Urbana Giant

Seasonal Programs

The first weekend in February, we collect canned/boxed soups and fixings for our Soup-er Bowl Soup Collection

During Lent, we collect story books for out littlest brothers and sisters in Head Start, and school supplies for those in Kindergarten

At Easter we give filled Easter baskets to over 160 children

We collect school supplies throughout summer and have equipped over 160 students to be ready to learn when school starts

We glean left-over produce from Urbana Farmers Market vendors during summer, and collect donations from neighborhood gardeners in our Plant A Row Program

We participate in local Boy Scouting For Food in November

We provide complete Thanksgiving dinners for 145 families

Last year, 2,500 Christmas gifts were distributed to needy families in our communities
