Holiday Food Box Program
Capuchin Community Services provides families in need with food baskets that contain all the fixings for a holiday meal, complete with a turkey or supermarket gift card so they are able to prepare a festive meal in their own home.
Due to the current health crisis we are distributing the boxes and toys from a tent outside. Our empowerment classes are suspended as we can't teach indoors yet. In the photo to the left, Capuchin Br. Robert Wotypka helps our guest Gary, with his food bags.
We are always looking for partners who can assist us with this community-building ministry. Businesses, organizations, parishes, and schools are welcome to form a team and hold a holiday food drive. In the photo to the right, Capuchin Br. Jerry Smith shares groceries with a guest.
- Your group can collect food for the boxes we send home at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Download a copy of our shopping list to share with others.
- We can deliver the food boxes to your church, workplace or school in sets of approximately 25 strapped flat.
- At the completion of your food drive, your group fills the boxes. (The boxes have the list printed on the side to make filling them easy.)
- We return to pick up the filled boxes.
Thank you to our 2019 Sponsors!
We can customize any of the materials available on our website for your group. Here are some sample materials you can use to encourage people to help donate food for a drive:
Shopping List (pdf) for the Holiday Food Box... (2 pages pdf) Flyer designed to be shared with key decision makers. Lists on back designed to print & distribute to your group.
Additional Service Opportunities - (1 page pdf) Flyer detailing three different service opportunities. Promote one, two or all three!.
