Donate Food

Cans and nonperishable food items may be delivered to any of our locations during the following days and times:

If you have nonperishable food to donate, you can either deliver it or request a pick-up from one of our Food Delivery Locations. We encourage you to deliver any food donations that can fit in the trunk of a car. For food donations that may require a larger vehicle, please contact the drop-off location closest to you to request a pick-up.

Please submit any pick-up requests at least three weeks in advance.
