What items can you accept?

As a food pantry, there are certain items that we are not allowed to accept. These items include: alcohol, medicine, and home-cooked or home-canned food. Additionally, we do not accept clothes because we do not have the capacity to include that in our services. Check out this guide for a more detailed list of what we can and cannot accept! If you’re on the fence about anything, just bring it by! Our volunteers are trained on inspecting items, so you can let us make the final decision on an item.
