Food for Thought’s mission is to provide nutritious meals to chronically hungry school children in our community
At Giving Through Jewelry, 10% of all sales are donated to a charity of the buyers choice. We realize that there are a lot of charities to choose from so we would like to highlight some of our favorites. January’s featured charity is Food for Thought. Check out our FACEBOOK page at the beginning of each month to see how much was donated. Pets of the Homeless is a nonprofit volunteer organization that provides pet food and veterinary care to the homeless in local communities across the United States and Canada. Their efforts have effects far beyond the care of the pets themselves.
Food for Thought and its volunteers are dedicated to helping hungry children in our community by providing food, as well as solutions, resources and increased awareness, to combat hunger. As resources allow, we will continue to expand service to include high schools and more summer food program locations.
How to Help
Food for Thought relies strongly on donations and volunteers. We accept donations of money and food and we always welcome volunteers. We are grateful for any donation, so please don’t hesitate to help the hungry children in our community with either a monetary donation or the value of your time!

Food for Thought appreciates every donation we receive. Through our strategic partnership with Northern Nevada Food Bank, we’re able to buy nutritious food at greatly reduced rates. Your generous donation enables us to provide healthy meals for the hungry children in our community.
Food Drives and Drop-off Locations
How to Hold a Food Drive
Doing a food drive takes time and planning.
- Determine the purpose for the food drive. For example, is it a Holiday Food Drive, Back to School Food Drive or a Summer Food Drive? This helps with what types of volunteers you will want to recruit and how you will advertise the event.
- Contact Food for Thought – they can tell you what they’re most in need of and possibly supply ideas for volunteers and food drop-off locations.
- Advertising is critical for your upcoming food drive. Contact local schools and businesses by supplying fliers for the businesses and for students. Advertising in the local paper and radio stations allows all sectors of the public to be aware of the upcoming food drive.
- Be sure to have acceptable transportation if the food drive will not be held at the Food for Thought warehouse. Contact Food for Thought for information on trucks to transport the donated food or information for volunteers who have transportation capable of carrying large amounts of food.
