Re-stock Our Food Pantry, Community Kitchen, and Residential Facilities!  

Our Food Pantry and Community Kitchen both collect food at 100 W. Rosemary Street. Non-perishable food is distributed at the Food Pantry, while prepared food and bulk items go to Community Kitchen for preparing meals. Please make sure your food donations are not expired and do not contain alcohol. If you are making a large donation, please notify us ahead of time. 

For non-food items we need regularly or currently, please see the list of Personal Care Products under the Pantry, below, and the list under "Residential Facilities."
