Monthly Giving

Subscribe to Compassion

Make room in your life to fill another’s plate.

These are your neighbors.

Consider Maria – a single mother of two, working two jobs and still struggling to put food on the table. Or think of George – a proud senior who has worked hard all his life, now living on a fixed income and finding it difficult to afford nutritious meals. 

In a world where subscription services are the norm – from music and movies to coffee and clothes – have you considered subscribing to a cause that can change lives? As the face of hunger and food insecurity becomes increasingly visible in our community, Food Share emerges as a beacon of hope for countless families. 

But we need your support to ensure no plate remains empty.

Steady support makes a world of difference.

Subscribing to our cause means providing consistent support that enables us to plan, source, and distribute food efficiently to those most in need. Your commitment ensures that our operations run smoothly and that nutritious meals reach the tables of our neighbors.

1 in 4 people in Ventura County experience food insecurity.

66% have had to choose between food or receiving medical treatment.

Food Share serves 260,000+ individual people on an annual basis. But there are still more going to bed hungry.

Your once-a-month gift allows us to work 24/7

Your gift provides the resources to sustain our long-term initiatives that lead to some of the biggest impacts in our community.

Skip one $10 gourmet coffee a month:

Your contribution could provide Maria and her kids with fresh fruits and vegetables for a week.

Forgo a $25 movie night out once a month:

That’s enough to stock our shelves with nutritious canned goods for numerous families like Maria’s.

Ditch a $50 dinner once a month:

Your generosity could ensure nourishing meals reach seniors.

Cut out a $100 luxury purchase once a month:

The redirected funds could support community outreach programs that connect struggling families and individuals to resources.

When you subscribe, you do more than just donate funds – you multiply their impact.

Food Share has a powerful network and strong partnerships that allow us to stretch every dollar beyond its apparent value. Here’s how:

1. Leveraging Purchasing Power:

Our relationships with farmers, retailers, and other food suppliers enable us to buy in bulk at reduced prices, meaning your dollar can provide more food than if spent at retail prices.

2. Maximizing Food Rescue:

We rescue surplus food from supermarkets and restaurants that would otherwise go to waste. Each dollar you contribute helps us transport, store, and distribute these valuable resources to those in need.

3. Fueling Volunteers:

A significant portion of our work is carried out by dedicated volunteers. Your donation helps train, equip, and coordinate these amazing individuals who give their time and energy to feed the hungry.

In essence, each dollar you contribute delivers more than a simple meal – it brings hope, creates sustainable change, and fights the cycle of poverty and hunger. So when you join, remember: your impact is amplified, making a difference that’s far greater than you might think.

The Benefits Don’t Stop There

We believe in the circle of giving, and it doesn’t end with your generous donation. As a monthly donor, you’ll enjoy:

    • Satisfaction: Feel the joy and fulfillment of knowing that you’re making a direct, sustained impact on the lives of those who need it most.
    • Connection: Stay connected with regular updates on how your monthly contributions are making a difference, and stories from the people you’re helping.
    • Efficiency: Set up your donation once, and change lives every month, without additional effort on your part.
    • Flexibility: You’re in control. Increase, decrease, or cancel your monthly donation at any time.
    • Tax Benefits: As a non-profit organization, your donations to our Food Bank are tax-deductible.

Subscribing to Food Share is more than just a monthly commitment; it’s a lifeline for those grappling with hunger. It’s a promise of nourishment, hope, and resilience. It’s a testament to the power of community.

We invite you to become a Give Every Monther – a true G.E.M. in our fight to ensure that no one in Ventura County goes hungry.

Because every meal matters, and so do you.
