Non-perishable food is collected from a variety of sources: local churches, businesses and schools, community service programs, local groups and organizations, individuals and families.

Please be mindful of the cold temperatures when bringing food to the pantry. If food is left in vehicles for too long of a period it may freeze. We can not keep canned and glass jar items that have frozen as the seals may break, leaving the food not safe. Thank you for your cooperation!

The Pantry uses cash donations to purchase food whenever food donations run low in order to maintain our goal of providing caring, reliable service to the community.
