1. Host Your Own Food Drive

classy Food drives can be a fun and easy way to support Mama’s Kitchen and help keep our food expenses to a minimum. The nonperishable items collected at food drives help stock our shelves at Mama’s Pantry (click here for our wish list). If you would like to organize a food drive at your next event, please contact Gustavo at gustavo@mamaskitchen.org or call 619-233-6262 to arrange a barrel delivery, and we’ll pick it up when your food drive is over!

Organize a food drive at:
Your place of worship
Your office/place of employment
At a private party or house party
Your school, association, or club

2. Host an Online Food Drive

Hosting a Virtual Food Drive provides perishable staples such as poultry, beef, cheese and milk for our Mama’s Pantry clients. Your donation dollars go directly to the purchase of perishable food and are stretched further with our ability to use wholesale prices. Please contact silvia@mamaskitchen.org to set a page up for you.
