FOOD DRIVE INTEREST FORM

If you or an organization would like to have a food drive, we will ask that the food be limited to the items we need most during that time.  These items are typically items we find it hard to purchase affordably.

During the holiday Season, we are easily overwhelmed with food drives.  In order to manage the load on the food pantry we ask that you please book your drop off time EARLY.

WE NEED FOOD YEAR-ROUND!
Please consider doing your food drive in the Spring when we need it the most.

Please check that food that is donated to your food drive has not expired!
We can not distribute food that is past it’s expiration date.

Items we are currently in need of (items in bold are urgent needs):

Cooking oil (any kind) Coffee (any kind) Tea (individually wrapped or in a small box)
K-cups (any kind) Sugar Packets Sweeteners
Protein drinks Protein bars Trail mix
Snacks, including snack bars Sugar-reduced or sugar-free snacks & condiments Gluten-free items
Jarred spaghetti sauce Salad dressing (especially italian and ranch) Condiments (ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise & soy sauce)
White tuna fish (not regular) Boxed soup (please no cans) Household cleaning products
