Christmas Hamper Program

Hungry for the Holidays.

The Holidays are not a joyful time of year for everyone, especially families who struggle to put food on the table–not to mention, to put presents under the Christmas tree. With your help, we can make the Holiday season a little brighter for families facing food insecurity.   

Each year, The Mustard Seed expands its services during the holiday season, organizing the Christmas Hamper Program.

Through the Christmas Giving Network, we collaborate and coordinate with other local charities to make sure donations stretch as far as they can. This December, more than 1500 additional Christmas food hampers will be put together by our team, offering families holiday food essentials including turkeys, and gifts for children and pre-teens, whose parents might not otherwise be able to afford them.
