Please bring food donations to the west side of the building during open pantry hours. We are also open for donations on the second Saturday of each month, 10 to 11 am. We have volunteers ready to help you unload your donations. These options works well if you have a large amount to donate, but you are always welcome to come visit the Pantry that day!
FOOD PANTRY WISH LIST:
Shopping and wondering what we’re looking for? Here are some ideas for your Food Pantry donations:
-Canned or boxed meals requiring little or no preparation (Hamburger -Helper, full dinners including meat)
-Canned meats (tuna, chicken, ham)
-Canned stews/pasta meals (such as ravioli, beef stew, chili)
-Very gently used books
Please check any donations from your personal pantry for expiration dates. We cannot give expired food to our neighbors who come to the Pantry.
Also please note: we cannot accept home-canned foods, home-baked goods, opened packages, or any food you would not feed to your family. Thank you for understanding.
If you have just a few bags to donate, you may take them to any of these places:
-Oregon Public Library (256 Brook Street)
-St. John’s Lutheran Church (625 East Netherwood)
-People's United Methodist Church (103 N. Alpine Pkwy)
-Holy Mother of Consolation Church (651 N. Main in Oregon)--the bin is located just inside the double glass doors next to the parking lot behind the church
-The Oregon Senior Center (219 Park Street)
-Donations can also be dropped off at Bill's Food Center (787 N Main Street) at the check-out line.
Learn about specific food drives (often with a variety of other drop off points) by 'liking' our Facebook page.
