Summer Break

While Putnam County School students are out for summer, giving them time to relax and be kids, Feed the Need is still working hard behind the scenes. We are having food drives, securing snacks and drinks for summer programs, picking up rescued food each week, writing grants for future food purchases and planning for our Fall Fundraiser! Please read on to check it all out.

May Food Drives!

Thank you too ALL that have been participating in the monthly food item drives! There have been so many, we haven't gotten pictures of them all.

May Cereal Bars

There were several churches, organizations and people collecting cereal bars for local food-insecure children in the month of May! Pictured counter clockwise: Dunns Creek Community Church, a local resident and Liberty Baptist Church. Many more not pictured.

We are collecting Jelly in July!

The jelly shelves are empty and FTN will be gearing up for the new school year starting in August. If your organization or friends would like to have a jelly drive we would love to have you join us! Call Stacey at 904-477-4356 for more info.

Summer Volunteers

Regulars and VyStar Employees

It's summer break... while the kids are out playing, the volunteers are still slaying!

FTN had a special packing event to get family bags together that will be ready for the new school year. They also organized the warehouse! All of the reusable grocery bag supplies have been depleted again, so if you have any to share please think of Feed the Need! You can drop off at Bramlitt's on HWY 19. A special thank you to VyStar for sending 4 employees to help with packing!! Thank you to all of our volunteers! We love you!!
