Red Bag Program

Participating in the Red Bag Program is as easy as 1-2-3!


It all starts with the red bag!  Request a bag on this site. Add pick up dates to your calendar here. Once we receive your request, a bag will be delivered to the address you provide.


On your next shopping trip, fill the bag with the food items listed on the tag that is attached to the bag.

No tag?  No problem!  Click here for the shopping list or shop from home with our Amazon Wish List.


Put the bag outside your front door by 8:30am on the Saturdays listed on the tag. We will send you an email/text reminder prior to the specified pick-up dates.  We will leave you a new bag and email you a receipt for your donation.

The best part is that your donations are delivered directly to the middle schools and high schools in your community. The food is then distributed to the students every Friday through their Weekend Snack Program. 


Kids in your local community will immediately benefit from your generosity!
