Project 2: Palm Beach County Food Project
The Neighborhood Food Project is a revolutionary way to collect food: It's a donor drive, not a food drive.
Instead of asking for one-time contributions of food, our volunteers (Neighborhood Coordinators) enlist their neighbors to become long-term Food Donors
Did you know...
Palm Beach County is known for its upscale environment and high end food culture, but there is another side to the community, where many residents cannot even afford the most basic food items!
It's Easy To Help!
Step 1: Every other month we will give you a reusable "Green Bag", which you keep in your pantry to store the food items you want to donate.
Step 2: Each week, when you go shopping, you buy one extra non-perishable item - something you would like to share with a needy neighbor, like a box of cereal, pasta, or a can of soup.
Step 3: For the next two months store all additional food items you want to donate in the Green Bag in your pantry and keep adding to your supply.
Step 4: Every other month, on the second Saturday ( Feb., April, June, Aug., Oct. and Dec.), a PBC Food Project volunteer, who lives in your neighborhood, will come to your front porch and pick up your Green Bag and leave you another one.
Step 5: Then, the collected food will be delivered to local food pantries for immediate distribution. All donated food will stay in Palm Beach County.
It's that EASY! All you have to do is say "YES" and become a Food Donor or Neighborhood Coordinator!
