Welcome to the Talent Food Project!
What we do:
Neighbors give a bag of food every two months, each second Saturday of even-numbered months. It's incredibly easy, because we supply the bag… and we pick up the food! This provides the food pantry in Talent with a steady, year-round supply of food… and provides donors with the ongoing satisfaction of making a real difference. People also get to know their neighbors, which builds a powerful sense of community. So everyone wins.
What's the result? Our system really works! We currently bring the Talent Food Pantry nearly 20,000 lbs. of food a year… one bag at a time! There's plenty of room for growth.
So read more, and then click on a link below the pictures to join us! The Talent Food Project (TFP) is a grassroots group. That means it depends entirely on people like you. Whether you donate food, collect it, participate in making policy decisions, or help out in some other way, you are what makes this program work.
Food Pick-Ups Every SECOND Saturday of EVEN-NUMBERED Months
Special thank you to Talent Food Pantry volunteer Alice Kellogg

We’ll bring you a reusable green bag. Put food in it, and we’ll pick it up every two months. It’s that easy!
Get a group of neighbors to be Food Donors, and pick up their food every two months, or help with an established route.
