Food Donations

Woman and child picking up food donation from Three Square Food Bank

You can change lives with a simple gift of food.

Food is something many of us take for granted — when we’re hungry, we eat. But what about our neighbors in Southern Nevada who are struggling? Where can they turn when the money runs out and there’s nothing left to eat?

Thankfully, these men, women, and children can count on Three Square when they need a helping hand. And it’s all because friends like you care about fighting hunger in our community. Your food donations ensure our hungry neighbors get the meals they need to make it through another day.

If you’re looking for ideas of what foods to donate, here are some of the most-needed food items right now:

  • Canned meats such as:
    • Tuna
    • Chicken
    • Ham
    • Spam
  • Dried and canned beans
  • Canned soups
  • Rice
  • Pasta
  • Cheese

If you’re looking for another way to help rather than donating food items, you can also help by making a gift to Three Square. Thanks to our relationships with food distributors, we can leverage the power of your gift to make it go even farther — just $1 can provide 3 meals!

Hunger Facts

Imagine your child’s classroom: thirty children, and fifteen of them are hungry.

More than 64% of children in the Clark County School District are enrolled in free and reduced-price meal programs based on their family income. That’s more than half of the kids facing hunger at home and coming to school unprepared to learn.
