Food Drive

Forever Fed is a mobile ministry delivering food and fellowship to families who are under-served in Cherokee County. Forever Fed's Cans4Kids/Food4U program distributes boxes of food containing seven meals and seven snacks to each person in the household twice each month to families unable to access area food pantries for food support. These families lack transportation, are disabled, elderly, homeless, or part of the working class poor. Most are single parent households. 

How we can help

We are collecting non-perishable food donations in our office. Forever Fed gladly accepts all types of canned goods. The most needed foods include:
Kid Friendly Soups  chicken based soups like chicken noodle, chicken rice, and chicken stars are especially popular
Canned Fruit canned peaches and pineapple are favorites
Breakfast Pastries  Pop-Tart style pastries, granola bars
Salty Snacks crackers, cheese crackers, Ritz style crackers, saltine crackers

Additionally, our practice is donating $10 for every new eyeglass frame sold from now until the end of the year.

We hope to see you soon with some food!

Eye Allergies

Pollen counts are rising! Here is our current advice for eye allergies. 1) Don't rub! As tempting as it is, rubbing actually makes it worse. 2) Use a good artificial tear like Refresh or Systane to help flush away the irritants and soothe the eye 3) Use OTC ketotifen twice a day. It is available without a prescription as Alaway and Zaditor 4) If symptoms persist, call our office and we can help with prescription medications.
