Until April 30, we will be collecting food for Friends of the Poor. For every donation of food or money received between March 1 and April 30, Friends of the Poor will receive a partial matching grant from the Feinstein Challenge. The Feinstein Foundation will divide $1 million among agencies who participate in the Feinstein Challenge to fight hunger in America. The more donations collected, the more money Friends of the Poor receives! Get Creative! Get a group/club/department/dorm/class to run a can drive, soup collection, cereal drive, dorm food drive, or anything else you can think of!
