Food Baskets

Food baskets should contain enough food to provide a holiday meal for a family of four. You may choose to put the items in a decorated box, re-usable shopping bag, wicker basket, laundry basket or whatever type of container you wish. These baskets may be the only holiday food our clients and their families receive, so be creative! Please do not include personal information about yourself.
