Food Pantry Hours!

Wednesdays:  2:00 to 4:00 P.M.

 

Fridays:  2:00 to 4:00 P.M.

 

Based on the needs of our current clients, we have noticed that some of what we’ve been stocking is not usable because our clients do not have access to kitchen facilities, etc.  They are homeless and are unable to heat or cook food. We have revised our needs lists to reflect these changes, based on their requests.

 

  • Canned protein: (Tuna, Spam, Chicken, Turkey, salmon, etc. Pouches work well, too.)
  • Canned meals (Beef Stew, Spaghetti, Ravioli, mac and cheese; the pop-top cans work the best)
  • We are no longer accepting canned beans; people haven’t been taking them and they are just sitting on the shelf.  We currently need dry cereal (not oatmeal) and canned fruit.
  • Peanut Butter (small jars)
  • Canned soup
  • Crackers
  • Canned vegetables
  • Canned fruits & applesauce
  • Dry Cereal & Packets of Oatmeal
  • Milk (canned & dry)
  • Ramen noodles
  • Granola Bars
  • Small jars of Mayonnaise (to go with the tuna)
  • Bread

We have a freezer in the Food Pantry and we can accept the following items for distribution:

  • Fresh Bread
  • Rolls
  • Buns
  • Cheese
  • Small Packages of Stew Meat
  • Chicken
  • Ground Meat
  • Lunch Meats
  • Fish
  • Hot Dogs


The Southeast Food Bank, where we shop weekly, is very low on food and we will need supplement elsewhere.  Any and all donations of food are appreciated; we cannot accept or distribute food that has expired or food that has been opened or home-canned or preserved.   

If you are unable to shop, monetary donations are accepted, as well.  Thanks in advance for your generosity!
