Alleviating Hunger in The Communities We Serve

Food Donations

THE MINT Foundation accepts food donations from local businesses and warehouses that want to help alleviate hunger in the communities we serve. To inquire about a food delivery or request a food pickup, please send an email to fooddonations@mintcares.org.


Uplift Saturdays is a community initiative that seeks to remove the barrier to healthy food options and to eliminate food insecurity in the communities it serves. This program aligns with our mission by serving the community by nurturing while promoting self-reliance and empowerment. The food pantry does this by addressing a basic need, food security, to alleviate poverty and improve overall quality of life.

To partner with us on our Uplift Saturdays community initiative, send an email to upliftsaturdays@mintcares.org and a member of Logistics Director will contact you within 12-24 hours.


As THE MINT Foundation sought to assist low-income families with quality programs for children and youth, the need to assist the overall community became apparent. Therefore, in 2010, we expanded our community outreach to include a weekly food pantry.
