The best way to provide food during a disaster response is through online cash donations to a food bank or similar organization. Cash donations allow food banks to buy from local businesses in order to fill gaps in the types of edible goods they’ve received.
Non-perishable, high-protein food donations are always appreciated, but keep in mind that they will need to be sorted, repacked, and distributed.
Organizations will provide specific instructions on when and where to drop off requested supplies.
