Financial contributions are the most effective way to support GHP FISH right now. They enable us to buy needed foods with minimal handling and potential exposure to the coronavirus. They also fund financial aid to clients facing emergency needs, and pay our rent, utilities and other operating costs. There’s no paid staff, so every penny goes into food, financial aid and operations.

Volunteer as a Group
We look forward to a return to normalcy, when neighborhoods, schools and other groups can come together to support the food bank. In the meantime, consider holding a virtual food drive by using one of the donate options on the donate page. Specify your drive name and GHP FISH will collate your donations and let you know the totals.
Here are some ideas for future projects:
  • Have a food drive in your neighborhood, business or club
  • Have a family or neighborhood garage sale for the benefit of the food bank.
  • Have a clothing drive or a new sock drive in your neighborhood.
  • Have your garden club, book club or other club take a themed food collection at your next gathering. Select a theme such as anything "hot" for the month of August such as hot dogs, hot sauce, cinnamon candy, spicy sausage, etc.
  • For holidays or celebrations, consider donations to GHP FISH in lieu of, or along with gifts.
