Host a Food Drive for RCS!

RCS is in need of a number of items that are challenging and/or expense to secure from our food supply partners. Food drives by individuals, schools, businesses and other community groups are a great help in supplying these items for our neighbors in need. Download our Food Drive Tool Kit (link) to make it easy. Our wish list includes, but is not limited to:

  • Canned protein, fruits and vegetables in pop-top containers
  • Ready-to-eat healthy snacks such as granola bars, nuts and dried fruit
  • Toiletries, including deodorant, soap and travel-sized shampoo, shaving cream and lotions

Items we can't accept include:

  • items that are opened, damaged, expired or perishable (frozen or refrigerated)
  • clothing
  • furniture
  • housewares
  • infant equipment.
