Thanksgiving Food Drive

Participation is easy!  We will drop off empty boxes the first week in November.  All you have to do is fill them up with non-perishable food items.  We will return on November 17th to pick them up.
All the food collected will be given away free to local food pantries in time for Thanksgiving.

We invite all businesses, schools, clubs, organizations and everyone else to participate!  Call Scott Biehler, Executive Director of the Mayors' Feed the Hungyr Program to

The Mayors’ Feed the Hungry Program is endorsed by the Mayors of Sarasota, Bradenton, Anna Maria, Holmes Beach, Bradenton Beach, Longboat Key, North Port, Palmetto, and Venice.  All the food we collect is given away free at food pantries in Sarasota and Manatee counties.

Volunteers are needed to help: deliver empty boxes; pick up boxes full of food from over 350 locations; and help sort the food on the final day of the food drive, Nov. 17th.  This is a great way for your company or organization to participate in a community sevices project.
