Donate Food

Food donations are a mainstay of the Food Bank, their value accounting to over 435,000 lbs. of food donated of the 3.25 million lbs. of food distributed in 2012. You might think the couple of cans of food you donate during a food drive doesn't amount to much, but you'd be wrong. Your gift could sustain a senior who has been saving money by skipping meals. Or it could help a child whose developing brain and body desperately need nourishing. We always need and welcome the following items:

  • Canned tuna fish
    Canned chicken
    Peanut butter
    Canned/dried beans
  • Canned light fruit
    Canned vegetables
    Dried fruit
    Jelly and jams
  • Cereal (low in sugar)
    Rice, quinoa, oats
    Pasta (whole grain)
    Bread (whole wheat)
  • Powered, shelf-stable, or evaporated skim or 1% milk
  • Frozen foods
  • Dairy products
  • Fresh produce
