Food Pantry Donations

Please help fill the Red Food Barrel for the upcoming holidays. This is the time of year when most people do think about giving to those in need. The truth is that food pantries are in need all year long. All area food pantries continue to have increased needs. Many of the clients that use food pantries to supplement their food needs have full time jobs but still struggle to put food on the table because of increased costs for rent and other necessities. Many other clients are seniors and are trying to survive on social security.

Please bring food items and personal care products and put them in the Red Food Barrel that is located near the coat closet at the front entry.

  • Breakfast cereal
  • Peanut butter
  • Canned tuna and chicken
  • Canned stewed, chopped or sauce tomatoes
  • Canned or jars of spaghetti sauce
  • Dried or canned beans
  • Canned or boxed soups
