We operate in a culturally diverse neighborhood, many of our visitors are Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC), including immigrant families from East Africa, West Africa, Latin America, and South East Asia. Therefore many of our high need items are culturally specific foods!
Our goal is to provide varieties that best meet those needs, including culturally universal and culturally specific food options in our food programs. We rely on food donations from individuals, faith-communities, businesses and schools, along with financial donations and grant funding, to help keep our shelves stocked. This makes it possible to provide healthy, sustainable, and culturally connected access to food.
Please consider partnering with us in giving intentionally,
these items are always in HIGH NEED:

Single Item Donation Drives:
At times, it is very helpful for us to receive a large quantity of one type of food item. This is especially helpful for our Home Delivery Program where we pre-pack groceries with foods that many of our neighbors enjoy such as sugar, cooking oil, rice, and pasta sauce. Contact us to learn more about how a Single-Item Donation drive can help meet one of our current needs (email@example.com).
Items we are NOT able to accept:
Extra-large cans or bulk-sized foods
Opened packages or partially used foods
Homemade foods or baked goods
Due to food safety regulations, we are unable to accept perishable items such as meat, eggs, dairy, frozen meals, or deli foods unless they are from a licensed business.
