Buy A Bag for the Hungry
Outpost's Buy A Bag program
Because hunger in our community doesn't take a holiday
November 1 - December 31
A $20 donation will buy $40 worth of nutritious natural and organic foods for the hungry, including fresh potatoes, apples and carrots - that's enough to fill a typical grocery bag.
GREAT NEWS! We had the BEST year ever for our Buy A Bag program!
Outpost's 2014 Buy A Bag goal was to raise $120,000 worth of natural and organic food. Instead we collected over $82,000 in donations to buy over $164,000 in natural and organic food.
Many thanks to the Outpost community that so generously supported the program this year. A special "thanks" goes out to Superb Health in Whitefish Bay who raised $805 to donate to Buy-A-Bag!
To help add to the fun and festivities of the season, area children bring in hand decorated shopping bags. Look for them at the stores!

Since 1999, Outpost's Buy A Bag has answered to the needs of the community by donating over $637,000 in food for Hunger Task Force, which in turn distributes these much needed foods - at no cost - to local area emergency food pantries during the cold winter months. Programs such as Buy A Bag contribute to the overall mission, vision and values of Outpost Natural Foods.
“Hunger Task Force is ever thankful for the Outpost owners who consistently show their kindness at the holidays through the Buy a Bag holiday food drive. With so many of our neighbors in need of basic foods, the generous gifts of food offered by this food drive assure that others are fed. Most of all, they show that people care, and during these tough times caring for others is especially important.
"When the snow falls and the thermometer reads colder and colder temperatures, this donation from Outpost Natural Foods will warm hearts as it leads to full stomachs,"
- Sherrie Tussler, Executive Director for Hunger Task Force.
