The groceries provided usually include a variety of canned vegetables and fruits, pasta, beans, rice and/or grain products. The protein items may include canned salmon, tuna, peanut butter and occasionally chicken or meat. The food assistance is intended to be a supplement. Supplies and amounts vary; typically the foods will provide groceries for a period of 3-5 days.
In addition to groceries provided, other supplies may be available dependent upon availability. These could include baby supplies, personal care products and laundry detergent.

There are two ways to donate food to the Emergency Food Pantry:

 1.  Donate Money

     With monetary donations, we purchase food items in bulk from organizations that support the pantry.  You dollar goes extra far since our sources also buy in bulk.  Please click on our Web site below for the address for donations.
