Operation Food Search distributes more than 1 million pounds of perishable and non-perishable food and household items to 300 food pantries and soup kitchens who offer emergency hunger-relief to nearly 100,000 poor people every single month. Nearly half the recipients are children.
Food drives are an important source of food. They generate much-needed canned food, dry goods and personal care items. Food drives can also include monetary collections. These donations will be used to purchase food.
