Holiday Meal Boxes

Human Concerns

The Mission of this Ministry is to organize an annual food drive for the purpose of collecting and packaging specified holiday food items for families experiencing food insufficiency. The completed Holiday Meal Boxes are submitted to the House of Peace in support of their initiative to feed up to 2,000 families in need of Thanksgiving and Christmas meals. The House of Peace supplements each of these Holiday Meal Boxes with a ham or a turkey.

Donations are sought to complete Holiday Meal Boxes. The House of Peace includes a ham or turkey with each box, prepared to feed a family of five. Your monetary donation will fill a box with items to complete a meal, such as mashed potatoes, stuffing, cake & cornbread mix, canned vegetables, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, gravy, boxes of macaroni & cheese and pudding/Jell-O. Last year, your generous donations filled over 600 Holiday Meal Boxes!! Let's see if we can top that this year.

A $30 donation will fill one Holiday Meal Box with 1 box mashed potatoes, 1 bag stuffing, 1 cake mix, 1 frosting, 2 boxes cornbread mix, 4 cans corn, 2 cranberry sauce, 4 green beans, 1 sweet potatoes, 2 boxes macaroni & cheese, 2 puddings, 1 gravy. Donate today!

We'll do the shopping for you. Make your online donation here.
