Hauser’s 52nd Annual Food Drive!!

Posted Jan 24, 2022 | Category: News

March 1, 2022 will mark our 52nd annual Food Drive! This annual event, not only helps those less fortunate in our town and the surrounding area, but it also brings us together as a community working for a common good…socially distanced, of course.

ALL Hauser students will be packing meals this year during the school day, enabling each child to experience the joy and satisfaction of helping the less fortunate. The meals packed, along with the food collected, will be delivered to the Riverside Township Food Pantry, Brookfield Share Food Share Love Food Pantry, the Salvation Army Red Shield Center Food Pantry in Englewood, and local residents in need. It only costs $.30 to prepare a meal. Your generous tax-deductible donation will help us meet our goal of packing more than 50,000 meals and collecting 15,000 cans.

FOOD DONATIONS – From Tuesday, March 8 until Friday, April 8, we will be gathering donations – both monetary and cans/non-perishable items (more info coming soon).

MONETARY DONATIONS – Donate NOW! You don’t have to wait until March to give monetary donations.  You can help right now! Just click on the Help Hauser Fight Hunger Cheddar Up link:

We appreciate your support!
– Your Hauser Food Drive Team
