Food For Thought Outreach is excited to announce our second annual “You CAN Help” Food & Membership Drive!

This year, the food drive will run during the Okaloosa and Walton counties Spring Break and we will be collecting food items and signing up new members March 19th through 23rd from 9am to 5:30pm at the Destin (908 Airport Rd.) AND Santa Rosa Beach (132 Market St.) Pantry locations.

Food For Thought will be accepting peanut butter & jelly in plastic jars, fruit cups, oatmeal packets, snacks like healthy granola bars, snack crackers, and breakfast bars, and easy to open, pop-top canned food (like soup, Chef Boyardee, veggies, tuna, and chicken).

Anyone can join the FFT Membership Program for as little as $7.50 a month and those funds go directly to feeding local students in need. If you’d like to register online, please visit or

We've set a goal of 16,000 food items for the You CAN Help Food Drive. This is the number of additional food items needed each month with the continued growth and we distribute over 29,000 food items each month through the backpack program alone!
