United Way: Bountiful Baskets

Donate non-perishable food items for Thanksgiving baskets for families in need

The United Way of the Mid-South is providing meals for families who need it most. Bountiful Baskets is a great opportunity to raise awareness, build community, and bring volunteerism to your workplace, organization, or social group.

The holidays are an expensive time for many in our community and can be especially difficult for families and individuals whose food budgets are already limited. The average family of four receives $465 a month for food through public assistance programs, which breaks down to $5.16 per meal. The average cost of a traditional holiday dinner is roughly $60. That’s 12 times the amount a family has available to spend on a single meal.

Create a meal box/es. Use the list of pre-selected, non-perishable foods to fill your bin with everything needed for a family of four. Add a $25 gift card to Kroger and follow the drop off instructions below. It’s that easy and you can make as many boxes as you’d like! If you want to make an even bigger impact, rally your workplace or community group to join you. We’ll supply all the tools to help you run a successful drive.

Drop off: The United Way of the Mid-South: 1005 Tillman Street, Memphis, TN 38112

The program runs from November 2-November 20, 2020
