Lots of needs…
We only have 23 cans of tuna left in the pantry. We’re completely out of salsa. We have very few boxes of Raisin Bran, Shredded Wheat, and other healthy cereals. Our soup selection is becoming pretty limited and we need more cream soups that can be used to build casseroles. People have been very generous with the canned fruits but that shelf is currently half empty because because it goes so quickly while fresh produce isn’t as available. And, as always, we are encouraging people to grow extra vegetables and fruits this season for the pantry. We have 3,000 square feet of garden space right here on the property so, if you start some vegetable plants, bring them over and we’ll grow and harvest them right here. It’s wonderful to be able to go out and pick what we need for the day.
Food donations can be dropped off here at the pantry Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM until 2:00 PM, and Saturday morning until noon. Come in for a visit and a tour if you’d like. If it’s not convenient to come to the pantry, our food collection containers have many convenient locations around town. For a complete list, go to
