Food Donations

We strive to give everyone fresh and wholesome food to stock their pantry; food to make a meal for their family. 

Non-perishable food items

We accept non-expired, damage-free, unopened non-perishable food items. We also gratefully accept grocery store gift cards, preferably in increments of $10.

Fresh fruits and vegetables

We gladly accept fresh fruits and vegetables from your garden. We distribute the produce through our Fresh Choice Market – which families can access once per week. Last summer, 250 families per week visited the market. We really cannot have too much fresh produce. During our annual client survey, fresh produce is always one of the most requested items.
