The Food Bank is always in need of donations of food and other items.

We also accept donations of fresh fruits & vegetables.  Also meat is an item that we are in short supply.   Meat (frozen/fresh) needs to be ready to give out.   Our preference is ground meat as it is easiest to give to all our clients.   Please call if you have any questions.

Large donations of fresh and frozen items are accommodated through our warehouse where we have a walk-in cooler & freezer.  All items at the warehouse are distributed to our four food banks as needed by each location.
