Food Drives

We believe, by sharing food, we share hope.

There are several ways to share food with your neighbors in need:

  • We welcome food donations at our Lewis Street Pantry.
    Individuals, groups, or organizations can drop off items at the side door between 8:30 am and 3:00 pm, Monday through Friday.
    Ask a volunteer at the door for assistance or if you would like a receipt.


  • Shop our local grocery stores during a food drive and purchase items.
    Volunteers will let you know what is needed when you arrive and will collect the food before you head home. See the list of upcoming food drives on this page.


  • Host a food drive to collect food at a local grocery store, business, or event.
    Please contact us prior to the event and we will provide any resources you may need for your food drive. If you plan to host a drive at a grocery store, be sure to contact the store manager first

Thank you for your support!
