Current Food Bank Needs


The following represents some current food bank needs as provided by Carlene:

  • All veggies except green beans and corn as we have a lot of these.
  • Canned Chili/pork&beans/spaghetti
  • Pancake or biscuit mixes and syrup
  • Rice
  • Meal helpers such as hamburger helper/rice-a-roni/boxed salad and potato dishes. 
  • Jiffy mixes
  • Sugar free items for diabetic food needs.
  • Peanut butter & jelly/jam

The items listed are just our most needed but we are able to use any food items. 

Often our needs change.   Donors are always welcome to contact me either by email or our Facebook Group.   

One of the items we really could use on a steady basis is tortillas.  We rarely have any bread and tortillas work so fantastic as they store flat without using up much space.  Families can do a lot with them.   But, they are too expensive for us to buy locally unless they are on sale. 

We do need some feminine products.   They are kept for emergencies and we are out.   We need small bottles of shampoo or better yet the shampoo/conditioner in one bottle.     

Small bottles of dish soap and a few deodorants.  

Again some of these toiletry items are for emergencies and not everyone,  as we can't possible supply that every month for every family.  I wish we could.   That would be awesome though.  

As for hotel bottles we do get those in and have them out for people to help themselves.  We are always happy to get them.  Families are happy to have them as well.
