Food Partnership Program

If you’re on vacation or simply have too much stashed in your fridge, you can respond to our automated text messages and instead have your order sent to a local family in need through Hockanum Valley Food Pantry.

If you’re interested in donating a share every week, you can simply purchase one and select the “donate” option upon signing up. Each share is packed with fresh nutritious products that often do not get to our local food banks. At the end of the year, we’ll provide you with a tax deductible receipt from a non profit organization. (Charitable giving deduction receipts remain for taxpayers who optimize with current tax laws.)
