Circle of Giving

Food For Thought receives thousands  of contributions each year from individuals, businesses and foundations. These donations are the source of the vast majority of our funding. At a time when income from all other sources is in decline, it is the generosity of our donors that ensures  that our clients continue to have the nutrition  they need to survive and be healthy. We have created the Food For Thought Circle of Giving to recognize the donors who make substantial annual contributions to this effort.
