How to Help

Food Donations - 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.
Monetary Donations - 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.
Volunteer - Volunteers are needed to collect, sort, pack, and distribute food, as well as keep our facility clean.   As our pantry evolves, our volunteer needs are changing. For more information fill out the contact form below. Or sign up for a time to volunteer.
