Healthy food donations to improve the health of the hungry
Let’s face it — the majority of food drives, while well-intended, focus more on quantity than quality. Why can’t we focus upon both?
Welcome SuperFood Drive — an organization committed to giving the gift of health. Dedicated to elevating and transforming the way we think about, and contribute to food drives — and to ultimately improving the health of the hungry. The statistics of those dependent upon food pantries are staggering. The accompanying health issues of those individuals, alarming. Highly processed foods, high in fat, sugar, sodium and chemicals perpetuate a vicious cycle.
Perhaps the next time you go to grab a can off a grocery shelf to donate to a local food drive or pantry — reflect upon how nourishing it is. Will this feed someone on a deeper level, spark something within them to know that they are worthy of healthy, good food and that healing is possible?
Kudos to SuperFood Drive for addressing the unhealthy elephant in the room. Let’s follow their lead. Let’s give consciously. Let’s transform the food banks within our local communities and beyond. Let’s raise the standards one nutritious donation at a time!

The opposite of hungry is not full — it is healthy.
