Help RIFA Provide a Hunger-Free Holiday This Year

For many of us, our happiest holiday memories are centered around the dinner table with family and friends. The home-cooked meals, the conversation, and the people we get to spend it with are what make this time of year so special. 

However, for many families, the holiday season can look much different. We here at RIFA believe that each family deserves the opportunity to eat a traditional holiday meal and want to do everything we can to provide this for the community. 

In partnership with United Way’s Christmas Partners and the Jackson Housing Authority, Hunger-Free Holidays is dedicated to ensuring that families have access to foods including ham, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and other staple pieces throughout the holidays. Last year, over 1,500 families, seniors, single moms, and individuals received a holiday food bag.

To continue this work, we need your help! Grab a bag and shop for the below items. You can also help provide the foods we all love by donating $21, the cost of one bag which feeds a family of four.

  • 1- 16 oz. canned ham
  • 1- can cranberry sauce 
  • 2- cans of corn
    2- cans of green beans
  • 2- cans canned yams
  • 1- boxed stuffing
  • 1- box instant mashed potatoes 
  • 2- boxes of Jiffy corn muffin mix 
  • 1- box brownie mix 
  • 1- box of tea bags 

This holiday season, RIFA is thankful for your continued support and looks forward to bringing joy to families through a special meal provided through these donations.
