Donate Food

Donating food is the most direct method of supporting The FOOD Pantry’s mission. A good rule of thumb for donating is: if you’d serve it, we want it. We handle all types of perishable and shelf stable foods, but here is a shortlist of items we look for the most and the times we accept them.
