We have been very fortunate to receive so many fresh vegetables from Newport gardens, including the one at Yaquaina Bay Lighthouse, so wonderfully maintained and harvested by the dedicated Lincoln County Master Gardeners. Taking home organically grown produce that has just come off the vine or out of the ground is a rare treat for so many struggling families. They eagerly empty those shelves every day. And these vegetables are so important to good health, especially for the many children and seniors who often must rely on foods that are high calorie but lacking essential vitamins and minerals.
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. If the pantry location and hours aren’t convenient for you, many wonderful organizations and businesses keep our food collection containers on site. For a complete list, please click here. Every donation, large or small, helps us feed our hungry friends and neighbors.
With Much Appreciation,
Newport Food Pantry
