Items Needed

Warehouse management is one of the most challenging tasks in our operation. Between handling an influx of items after a food-drive, keeping a minimum stock and responding to emergency situations, we sometimes fall short on some high-in-demand items. Every Wednesday, we post the top most-needed items on our Facebook page #whatsneededwednesday.

Urgently Needed

  • Tea
  • Hot Chocolate
  • Dried Soups
  • Shampoo/Conditioner
  • Women's Deodorant
  • Shave Cream/Razors
  • Cleaning Supplies
  • Toilet Paper

Donations

The items we accept as donations vary from cash, over pet food, personal hygiene items to all kinds of food.

There are, however, a couple items that we cannot accept, please do NOT bring us:

  • Homemade Food(Jams, Preserves, Canned Meats)
  • Meat not commercially butchered(we require proof from butcher/processing plant)
  • Wild Game
  • Ungraded Eggs

  • Opened or Partially Used Items
  • Frozen Foods
  • Over the Counter Medications

Fresh, perishable foods can only be accepted directly at the Food Bank WITH a copy of the receipt showing the date & time they were purchased.
