Food & Clothing Drives

Help stock our food pantry

WayForward Resources depends on both financial contributions and food drives in order to stock our food pantry with a variety of nutritious food. You can help us by hosting a food drive! To decide what to focus your drive on, please refer to our donation guidelines. Consider choosing a theme such as breakfast, baking or personal essentials. You can also check out our current Top 10 List for our most immediate needs or the Grocery List below for items we always need to restock. Before you begin planning your drive, please fill out our form below.

Food drive tips:

  • Download and print our Grocery List and attach to grocery bags
  • Print and attach shopping list (PDF below) to empty paper grocery bags and hand out in your office, church, or school
  • Set a deadline for people to return bag filled with food
