Food Donations from Community Members
If you are a community member with nonperishable food to donate or an abundance of garden crops to share, we can help get it into the hands of our food-insecure neighbors.
The surplus crops in your garden can make a difference to your neighbors in need. Homegrown produce can be donated to Food Bank partner agencies; call 855-309-FOOD (3663) for a referral near you.
The Food Bank cannot accept:
- Glass containers
- Food one year past its ‘best by’ date
- Open or partially-used products
- Food without ingredient labels.
We recommend donating healthy, nonperishable food that you would like to eat! Here’s a list of our most needed items:
- Canned tuna and chicken in water
- Beans and lentils (dry or canned)
- Whole grain cereals
- Whole wheat/grain pasta
- Low-sodium canned vegetables
- Canned tomato products
- Hearty low-sodium soups
- Canned fruit in juice
- Nonperishable ready-to-eat meals (chili, ravioli, etc.)
Please note: The Food Bank does not have the resources to pick crops or provide bins for harvested produce.
