Father Fred's Annual Fall Food Drive

September 27-October 4


September is Hunger Awareness Month and The Father Fred Foundation is capping off the month-long awareness campaign with its annual Fall Food Drive, from September 27 through Saturday, October 4.

Held at participating Tom’s, Oleson’s, and Family Fare stores in the Traverse City area, Father Fred’s annual Fall Food Drive helps ready Father Fred’s food pantry for the winter months ahead.

Thanks to a grant from the Oleson Foundation, all donations of cash or food donations will be doubled dollar-for-dollar up to $20,000 in the Oleson Foundation’s Value Match Challenge.

Participating stores include:

  • Tom’s 14th Street, Interlochen, West Bay, Acme, and East Bay locations
  • Oleson’s North Long Lake and Hammond locations
  • Family Fare on 8th Street and in Chum’s Corner
