Hunger is one of the most important issues facing our country today. We not only need to collect food for the less fortunate, but we need to raise awareness about this national tragedy as well. All councils are encouraged to conduct a food drive for their local food pantry or soup kitchen, and follow the guidelines set forth in the Food For Families Program.
Councils and assemblies are asked to collect $500 in monetary donations, or 500 pounds of food, and donate it to their local food pantry or soup kitchen. For every $500 or 500 pounds of food donated, the Supreme Council will send the council or assembly a $100 rebate! Participating councils and assemblies need to fill out Form #10057 in order to receive their rebate. This form is also available on the Supreme website. Please note the form requests you send a copy to the State Program Director, but we request you mail (or email) it to the State Food For Families Chairman, as noted below.
Supreme will provide you with a plaque which can be proudly displayed showing your support for the less fortunate in your community.
Not only will the donations collected help those in need, but community and parish drives will also help to raise awareness among our neighbors that there are members in their own community in need of help; plus that the Knights are there, and will always be there, to lend a helping hand to persons in need.
