We gladly accept all donations of food and dry goods. We are always in need of peanut butter, jelly, rice, pasta, canned or frozen meat, tomato products, beans, canned fruit and vegetables, pancake mix and syrup. We also like to help our families with toilet paper, paper towels, laundry soap, dish soap, toothpaste, diapers of all sizes, personnel hygiene products and baby food.

To organize and participate in a Food Drive please complete the Food Drive Form and return it to our office or email it to

Garden Vegetables

We gladly accept all donations of fresh fruit and vegetables. These items are placed in our bread room and available on a first come first serve basis to our families. We have limited refrigeration so vegetables with a longer shelf life are best. The food bank is open Monday and Thursday mornings and Wednesday evening so larger donations are distributed quickly on these days.
