Many people go hungry every day in Southwest Florida. Our team is working to help our friends and neighbors — one can at a time. You can help too.
Please join us in our 13th Annual CAN IT! food drive to support Community Cooperative by donating canned food or non-perishable items to one of our drop-off locations. Donations are accepted from October 15 to November 15. YOU can help us reach our goal of collecting more than 3,500 items this year!
Can't donate in person? You can shop and send us donations through Amazon.
Here are some suggested items that are always in need. Anything your family eats another family would most likely enjoy. Consider the buy‐one‐get‐one‐free items at your local grocery store and donate one!
- Boxed meal kits (Hamburger Helper, Tuna Helper, etc.)
- Canned Tuna, Chicken, Ham, Roast Beef
- Canned Fruits & Vegetables
- Canned Milk
- Soups (All Kinds)

- Macaroni & Cheese
- Pasta & Pasta Sauce
- Rice (Family Size Bags)

Our Drop-off Locations
We are always accepting new drop-off locations. Businesses are asked to allow the public to drop off non-perishable food items at their location during their regular business hours during the campaign period. We take care of making sure they get to Community Cooperative. In return, your business will be included in news releases, the PTE website, social media campaigns, and more.
