Help end hunger in our community.
Thanks to the steady support of our community, we are able to serve our neighbors in need of assistance by providing food, clothing, and housing stabilization services.
During certain holidays, the hours we accept donations of food and clothing change. Please refer to our calendar:
We are accepting food and personal care donations, focusing ONLY on what is on our Top Ten List. We will also accept clean paper and plastic bags.
Our food distribution currently is drive-thru with neighbors selecting items from a menu. We seek to gather large quantities of some of the most requested items so that we can list them on our menu. We likely won’t be able to distribute other items in a timely manner so we appreciate donations focused on our top ten list each month.
If you have large quantities of a specific item not on the list, please contact Jules Lee, Food Security Manager firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the potential donation.
