WAYS TO HELP

Please help our neighbors in need with your donation of cash, food or personal care items.  We are currently serving around 750 families each week and distributing nearly 30,000 pounds of food - the vast majority being fresh produce and healthy proteins. Only with your help can we continue to meet this unprecedented demand. 

Cash Donations

Cash Donations

If you are able to do so,  a monetary donation is perhaps the best way to help us continue our work.  We use these funds to purchase healthy food at wholesale prices and, quite literally, keep the lights on (and our refrigerators running). We have no paid staff. Click the "Donate" button to see a variety of secure online payment options.

If you would prefer to send us a check, you can find our address on the Contact page.  All gifts can be made in memory of or in honor of someone you feel would value and appreciate our work.

Don't forget to check if your employer has a matching gift program!

We also gratefully accept supermarket gift cards.

Donations of food are vital to the work we do and bring much-needed variety to our shelves. We accept donations at the Pantry at the times shown in the accompanying picture. If you would like to make a large food donation and the listed times are not convenient, please contact us.

Currently, we are most in need of:

  • Dried beans

  • Rice (1 or 2-pound bags)

  • Cooking oil

  • Tea and coffee

  • Meals-in-a-can

  • Baby food

  • Healthy (or even not-so-healthy) snacks and treats for children (we will distribute responsibly!)

  • Breakfast cereal (hot or cold)

  • Condiments such as ketchup, mustard, mayo, vinegar, and hot sauce

  • Cookies and crackers

  • Sugar, flour, and baking items such as cake mix

  • Any little luxuries or oddball items you yourself might like as a treat

Of course,  canned staple items such as tuna, soup, fruit and vegetables are always welcome, as are mac & cheese, pasta and pasta sauce.
