Give Food

One food donation can contribute to fighting hunger in Jackson.

Donated food is an integral part of our work to serve our neighbors that are struggling with food insecurity and hunger. We do not purchase food, so donations from individuals, groups, companies and retail industries are vital to our ability to provide meals to those in our community.

Host a Food Drive

If you’re looking to make an impact, sign up to host a food drive—it’s easy and fun. Food drives are a simple but powerful way to gather needed foods and contributions for hunger relief across our community.

Any individual or group—be it a school, business, community group or church—can create a successful food drive. Take action and help fight hunger in our community!

We have made it simple to run your own successful food drive by simply following our Food Drive Guide. Check out the tools in the kit to find out how!

Why donate to RIFA?

I think volunteering has given me a sense of giving back to the community. When I was working at a regular job, I didn’t have time to volunteer, even though I wanted to. But once I retired I knew I had the time, I just had to find where I wanted to volunteer. Volunteering at RIFA gives me something to do to give back, keeps me busy, and I’ve really enjoyed it.
