FOOD & PRODUCE DONATIONS
Due to a huge influx of food donations and minimal storage space. CGC is happy to accept donations of 100 lbs. or less, outside of our harvest donations, without prior approval just contact us to coordinate a drop off. Any larger donations will need to be approved and coordinated to ensure we have the space and outlets for them so that nothing goes to waste.
We gladly accept in-kind donations, such as gift-certificates or products, to auction off in our silent auctions. This is a great way to show your support whether it’s big or small, while also drawing in clients to your own business. Donation receipts for the value of each in-kind donation will be issued.
This is an excellent option for our supporters that have a store-front. Our boxes are small and come complete with an info-graphic card, informing your customers what/why they’re supporting us. Displaying one of our donation boxes will show your customers that you care about our community and food security. We understand that COVID has made it difficult for some businesses to contribute financially, so this is a great way for those businesses to support. It is a low pressure way of giving your customers the opportunity to support our organization if they should feel so inclined.
