Summer Food Drive
Think Outside The Lunchbox Summer Food Drive For Kids
June 1 - August 31
Hunger doesn't take a vacation. That's why Outpost joins forces with Hunger Task Force every summer to help end hunger for our community's families in need. Started in 2003, the Think Outside The Lunchbox summer food drive educates Outpost owners and shoppers about hunger in our community especially for those kids who rely on school meals as a part of their daily nutrition.
Please consider helping local families this summer by donating packaged grocery items and/or cash at conveniently located donation jars at each cashier lane.
