Donate Food

We rely on people like you to feed those that do not have the means to feed themselves. On average, we disburse nearly two and a half tons of food every day that we serve. Without food donations, we have nothing to give.

See below for a list of things that we have the greatest need for, or download and print out a list to take to the grocery store.
