The birthday bags have been a tremendous gift for the children of our Food Closet clients. Our goal is to brighten the birthdays of local children whose families have hit hard times. With the help of the Auburn Interfaith Food Closet, we provide "Birthday Bags" to these families, helping them make their child's birthday special. We believe that every child is special and every child deserves a special birthday!!!

A Birthday Bag contains: 

  • cake mix
  • frosting
  • candles
  • gift
  • tissue paper
  • all placed in a colorful gift bag


When the family gets the "Birthday Bag" home, they can bake and decorate the cake, wrap the gift with the tissue paper and gift bag, sing Happy Birthday, and watch as their child makes a wish and blows out their candles.

To help the Food Closet provide these birthday bags to our client’s children, we accept donations of any of the above-listed items and we will assemble for age appropriate children.

If you have questions about this program, contact the Auburn Interfaith Food Closet; see the Contact item in the menu to the left.
