Feed-A-Friend is a year-round community-outreach initiative to collect food and raise funds for the people served through the food program at New Hope Ministries. Your efforts will truly change the lives of the people we serve. You can make your Feed-A-Friend event the way YOU want it – involve friends, family, co-workers and more. 

Here’s how!

  1. Choose to Feed-A-Friend! Make the commitment to collect non-perishable food items and monetary donations to support New Hope Ministries, or sign up your business or organization to sponsor Feed-A-Friend.
  2. Schedule a day, week, or month to hold your very own Feed-A-Friend event.  Start your own food drive to suit your schedule or join us for one of our agency-wide Feed-A-Friend initiatives.
  3. Set a goal! Fill up a certain number of boxes and raise a special amount of money.  $20 will feed a family of four for one week at New Hope Ministries.
  4. Let us know what you need to be successful. Below, you will find posters and signs you can download and print, food list flyers, and an online donation platform to help you raise money – here you can create your very own personal page for your event!

It’s that easy to Feed-A-Friend! Hold your food drive and collect funds to feed the hungry and end poverty in our community.


What is the difference between Feed-A-Friend and a food drive?

Feed-A-Friend is a special branded program that incorporates a food drive with monetary donations as well.  A food drive, you are just collecting food items.  The special Feed-A-Friend boxes (below) are for those drives that incorporate monetary donations in addition to food items. Thanks for understanding!

Helpful Tools

For Feed-A-Friend events only, we have food collection boxes for you to use! What a great way to showcase your event and collect items. The boxes are 18x18x30″.  These boxes can be used only in conjunction with fundraising efforts via our Feed-A-Friend model.  If you are having a food drive only (and no monetary collection) then please utilize your own boxes/containers. Have fun – decorate them with a fun theme or company logo … or feel free to call your nearest New Hope Center to see if they have spare boxes. Thanks!!

If you would like to print the 11×17″ Feed-A-Friend sign for the box, please click here!
