Instructions

Figure out when and where you plan to donate food items. To schedule a donation drop-off, please go to epath.org/donate. 1. Ask friends and family for donations or to purchase extra food items the next time they go grocery shopping . Items should include boxed stuffing mix, cranberry sauce, pie crust mix, canned vegetables, mashed potato mix, or boxed mac & cheese. Please be sure to remind people that all items should be new. 2. Once you are sure that you and your helpers have gathered enough food items, plan an assembly party at home! Put food items of each type into a reusable tote bag. You may want to include a positive and uplifting note in each bag reminding the person who will receive it that you are thinking about them. 3. Reach out to pathvolunteers@epath.org to coordinate a time to drop off your food donations at our location during normal business hours: PATH 340 N. Madison Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90004
