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  We receive thousands of pounds of outdated products each year.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.
