Our mission is to help our neighbors with sustainable, nutritious food supplies. To fulfill what Jesus said "Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me" Matthew 25:40

Siskiyou named "hungriest county" in both California & Oregon

Feeding America recently released a study of the most food insecure counties in the nation. This got the attention of Jefferson Public Radio, who invited us to participate in The Jefferson Exchange on Monday, May 15th. Listen to our interview!

Halloween Volunteering Ideas

Treat your community to supporting a local cause during the Halloween season. Fright people for a cause and use ghouls and goblins to a nonprofit’s advantage. Many schools, churches and community organizations offer Halloween-related volunteer opportunities. Have fun with fundraisers and volunteer opportunities during the Halloween season; don’t be afraid to dress up in a costume! Here are a couple Halloween volunteering ideas for an organization that you are passionate about:

Haunted house fundraiser—Easily set up a haunted house at any location with Halloween decorations like tombstones, cobwebs, mummies and pumpkins. Dim the lights, add a strobe light and ask volunteers to help as costumed characters to heighten the scare factor. Charge admission and hand out pamphlets educating visitors about the benefiting organization.

Corn maze fundraiser—To raise funds in a less scary way, host a corn maze fundraiser. Partner with a farm and land owner and ask volunteers to hand out water and serve apple cider. Offer hayrack rides and walkthroughs and charge admission for the benefiting local organization.

Trick or treat at hospitals—Don a Halloween costume and go help trick-or-treat at a local children’s hospital. Visit the hospital armed with scary ghost stories and lots of candy to entertain the kids. The children will be thankful for a funny or scary Halloween treat!
