All for One- Community Food Drive

Dear Community Members,

We are all going through this difficult time of COVID-19 crisis. In the US so far more than 89,000 people have lost their lives. Due to COVID-19 crisis there is unprecedented demand for food that has tripled locally. We are seeing people lined up for hours for food distribution. It is so painful to see the corona virus causing devastating health crisis along with tragic death toll, emotional trauma, and severe economic crisis. At this time of calamity, different cultural and religious communities have joined hands with All for One-One for All together as one community, Including Muslim, Sikh, Jewish, Christian, Interfaith, Latinx, Hindu, Bahai, Unitarians Universalist, and interfaith groups among others to help feed the hungry. Local elected officials are helping us to support this food drive project. We greatly appreciate them for helping the communities at this difficult time of COVID-19 crisis. 

FOOD DRIVE - DRIVE THROUGH FOOD PANTRY
Because of crisis we are not able to find food in bulk, so we are asking each participating family to make food boxes consisting of essential groceries for each household served. This way, families who receive supplies would have enough for a longer period. We are hoping to support 1000-1500 families in this round.

Food box pantry items:
pasta  / peanut butter / cereal /flour / ritz cracker / rice / oil / sugar/ coffee
Cans: vegetarian beans/ chickpeas / tomatoes/ pasta sauce/ tuna fish

Option one: food boxes ($25-30 each box) as many as you can
Option two: Monetary contribution set up: Go Fund Me

*When donating, please make sure say no for tips. Go to “other” and then type in “$0”
Donations will go to food banks and food boxes
