Spread the Word
If you know someone who is hungry, please tell them about the services available at the Pantry. For those who are more fortunate, tell others about how they can support the Pantry.
Gardeners, please plant a little extra and/or donate your excess harvest of vegetables, fruit, and eggs. We accept a variety of seasonal produce which can be dropped off at any time during donation hours (see our contact page).
Volunteer at the Pantry
The Pantry could not operate without our volunteers. Volunteers accept food from donors, issue receipts, unload vans and stock shelves, drive shut-ins to the Pantry, take food to shut-ins, and pick up food from area farms and orchards. They also help by shopping with customers as well as loading food into their cars. Click here for more information on Volunteer Opportunities. Or, if you have special skills related to food, health, wellness, etc., let us know and we’ll find a way to put you to work.
If you do not have fresh produce or other related donation items, cash is often the next best way to contribute the Pantry. This can also be in the form of a check (see our donations page for details). The Pantry can often buy more with a dollar than you can.
Donate Perishable Foods, Pet Food, and Toiletries
The Pantry is always in need of Milk, Eggs, Butter, Sliced Cheese, and Ground Beef. In addition, the Pantry needs Peanut Butter, Jam and Jelly, Hearty Soups, Canned Meat and Tuna, Pancake Mix, Coffee, Tea, Cooking Oils, Ketchup, Mustard, and Syrup. Finally, the Pantry accepts personal items like toothpaste and other toiletries.
Feel free to call (540-987-5090) and ask what we need to put on the shelves this week. We are always ready to accept donations!
