How to Help

  • An easy way to help is to give unexpired, non-perishable food directly to the Pantry.  See our “Wish List” below for staples that we provide or items that we can use.
  • Partnerships with local food banks allow us to purchase food at tremendous savings.  Each $1 donated can provide four to six pounds of food for those in need.
  • As our pantry evolves, our volunteer needs are changing. Volunteers are needed to: collect, sort, pack, and distribute food, as well as keep our facility clean.  We need event planners and administrative volunteers to return calls. For more information see the Volunteers page and send us a message including your gifts and where you would like to serve - even if it is not listed!
