Donate Food

The Open Pantry is always in need of non-perishables which could be considered a nutritious part of a meal. These include:
Canned vegetables, canned fruits, fruit juices, canned beef, turkey or chicken, canned soups and stews, tuna, pasta, cereals, powdered milk, macaroni & cheese, rice, spaghetti sauce, peanut butter, and beans.

Donations are welcomed any time of the year

Frozen turkeys, whole chickens, and ham/canned ham are all welcome during the holidays.

In addition, we distribute toiletries including: soap, toilet paper, tissues, paper towels, toothpaste, and shampoo.  At times, we may also provide diapers, wipes, baby formula, baby food, and cat/dog food when available.


Please help us by making sure all food donations are safe to consume by our constituents by checking expiration dates, food safety alerts, and the condition of the product(s) before dropping off.
