A Thanksgiving Note: We are all set for provisions for our annual Thanksgiving meal distribution. The turkeys have been ordered and the fixings are in stock.

If you would like to donate goods, please refer to the list below. Thank you for your support of the Pantry!

Reusable shopping bags (new or gently used)

Please check the dates on all items. We cannot accept expired food.  We receive thousands of pounds of outdated products each year. The sheer volume creates a lot of extra work for volunteers because they check expiration dates on every item. And, inevitably, more work and resources are required to dispose of the expired food. Thank you for helping us prevent excess waste as well as volunteer burnout.
