Food & Funds Donation Drives

The Foodbank gladly accepts food donations at our facility during business hours (M-F: 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m) – no need to call or coordinate in advance!

Items Needed

We accept and encourage donations that support special diets and/or the specific chronic conditions of our neighbors. Food donations that are high in protein, 100% whole grain, low or reduced sodium, and low sugar will make the most nutritional impact.

We welcome donations of non-perishable items in their original, sealed packages.
This allows us to ensure the safety of products for those we serve.
