We would love it if your group, agency, or company would like to collect items for Luke 14:12’s new First Meals Program!

Each family will receive the non-perishable items listed below, in addition to an insulated bag of frozen entrees and vegetables for their first week in their new home. If you are planning on collecting items, please email us at so we can tell you what items are our highest priority.
