On the third Sunday of every month, we collect food donations. Your donations  will be distributed to area hunger-fighting organizations. You can be certain your generosity is greatly appreciated by our Manatee County neighbors who face constant food insecurity. 


Pack-A-Sack provides more than 135 chronically-hungry Samoset Elementary School children with sacks of food each Friday to be consumed over the weekend.  Please donate small individual containers that are easy to open and multi packed for easier handling. Suggested items: 

Pasta or Mac & Cheese (7-1/2 oz cans)
Applesauce or Fruit Cups (no sugar added) Pudding Cups
Crackers (filled with cheese or PeanutButter)
Cereals (boxed, individual, NO Oatmeal)
Breakfast Bars (or Granola bars)

All items are normally available at BJs, Sam's, Costco, or Walmart.

Currently, Pack-A-Sack is low on pasta (mac & cheese), pudding cups, boxed fruit juices (no sugar added), and individual boxed cereals.
