Give Food

Contributions of food are vital to our mission.

So whether you are organizing a food drive, a gardener with a bountiful harvest, or just somebody who enjoys helping give food – we welcome your support.

Not all food is created equal: While the most important food items for donation throughout the year are proteins like canned tuna and chicken, peanut butter, canned beans, and dry beans, at certain times of the year we have special needs like canned soup or chili. Fresh fruits and vegetables are always welcome.

Donation guidelines:

  • Dry and canned goods and other non-perishable items may be dropped off any time. If no one is available to accept your donation, you may leave it on either of our two covered porches. Please do not leave items more than one year past their “best by” date; trained volunteers will determine what we can distribute but you can help them greatly by weeding out older items.
  • Fresh fruits and vegetables may be dropped off Monday through Saturday, 8:30am – 11:30am. Please be sure the fruit and veggies you donate are not rotten, moldy, wilted, or spoiled. Our goal is to distribute as much fresh produce as possible and our volunteers thank you for your assistance.
  • Frozen and refrigerated items may be accepted under limited circumstances. Please contact us at (360) 683-1205 for more information.
  • Non-food items may be dropped off any time. If no one is available to accept your donation, you may leave it on either of our two covered porches.
