DONATE FOOD

INTRODUCING OUR NEW
KIDS CLUB "FILL A BAG" FOOD DRIVE

 

Can you mobilize a group to help us feed kids? If so, you can contribute to our Kids Club Program by filling twelve (12) or more grocery bags with kid-friendly foods/treats. We distribute over 75 bags a week to families with children!

Here's the shopping list for each bag and our FAQ.

If you're interested, please email Cathy Boskey.

We are not accepting"walk-in" individual food donations at this time due to COVID-19. 

Thank you for your on-going concern and support!

HOW MUCH FOOD DO WE DISTRIBUTE?

We provide every household with pre-packed grocery bags of shelf stable food. Large families receive more. These bags include food for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

We are also giving out bags of fresh produce, refrigerated items and frozen chicken, fish, meat and vegetables.

 

Families with children receive an additional "Kids Club" bag of food that includes mini-milk boxes, granola bars, peanut butter, jam, canned tuna and snacks.

This all adds up to about 7,500 pounds of food packed into 500 bags every time we are open!

We are now providing groceries to 125+ families a week and we expect that number to increase.

 

Commercial FOOD DONATIONS 

If you are a food distributor, restaurant, retail store or vendor who wants to donate food, please call us or email our Pantry Manager, Rose.
