Food Drives


Food drives are a great way to help keep our Common Cupboard stocked. 

Here are some ideas... 

  • Your church, Sunday school class, youth organization or business can hold a food drive. Pick a day and ask everyone to bring in a bag. 
  • You could do a neighborhood food drive. Give out bags in your neighborhood with a note. Ask folks to put the bags at their mailbox filled with groceries for the cupboard. 
  • Food scavenger hunts are a great fun way for your youth organization to bring in bags of groceries. Make it a contest! 
  • Here is a way to combine worship and community service at your church. Have a monthly food collection in connection with your Communion Service. As you experience the breaking of bread in communion, you can share your bread with the "least of these my brethren." 

Register your food drive and we will promote it on Facebook and our calendar.

Here is a list to download of items we regularly need.

Virtual food drives

You want to help fill the shelves at the Cupboard but you missed the food collection at church or in your neighborhood? Maybe you can't make it to the store or you keep forgetting to pick up a few items to donate. Well, you can use this virtual food drive to donate can goods to help fill the shelves at the Cupboard. You can send a check to Common Heart, PO Box 2761, Indian Trail, NC 28079 or you use the link below to give with your credit card, debit card or by automatic draft. Thanks for giving!
