Monthly Giving

Partners Ending Hunger, our monthly giving program, is a convenient, efficient, and easy way to support the mission of the Food Bank and our work in the community.  You, the donor, choose an amount to donate monthly and the method of payment you wish to use and the Food Bank takes care of the rest. This amount can be charged to your credit card or deducted from your checking account at a specific time each month. You may also set this up through Automatic Bill Pay at your bank. This membership can be cancelled or changed at any time-simply call, email, or send a note and we will take care of it immediately. The terms are entirely up to you!

By joining PEH, you will be making an automatic indelible impact on the lives of our friends and neighbors in need. Aside from helping us tremendously in our efforts to help the hungry in our community, these gifts help us to plan our programs budgets and allocate funds so that we can make the greatest impact. Just as a steady food supply helps families to best utilize whatever existing resources they may have at their disposal, a consistent donor base enables us to use our other available resources more effectively and to be better able to make long term plans and set goals.
