Host a Food Drive:

Food drives are an essential donation stream for FISH to obtain a wide variety of food needed to give to our clients. We want them to have well balanced and nutritious food to bring home to their families. If you would like to host a food drive, please contact the FISH office to find out more details. We have barrels, posters, and helpful materials that we can provide to facilitate a successful food drive.
