You can help a few of the thousands of needy in our community that are unable to feed their families due to high unemployment and the poor economy. Donate a bag of food or write a check. Perhaps you have a surplus of vegetables from your garden or fruit trees that produce more than you need. And any donation of $1 or more to a food pantry goes a long way to help the families in need, as a dollar buys food for about 4 meals. The need is great, so we depend more on contributions and individual food drives to support our efforts.

We are grateful for your food donations! We accept unopened and unexpired food donations between the hours of 9:00 am and 1:00 pm Monday through Thursday, and on Friday from 9:00 am to 11:00 am. We cannot accept food donations after these hours or on weekends. Please do not drop or leave food on the property unattended, as it will spoil and/or attract animals. We thank you for contributing to our mission to feed the hungry.

We buy about $ 20,000 of food each month with bulk discounts from our local stores. Ralphs, Vons and Pavilions, Smart & Final, Trader Joes, Albertson's, Gelson's, Amazon Fresh, and Sprouts all support the pantry.

The average client at our pantry receives enough food for about a week's worth of meals, once each week, as we have a very limited budget that supports about 150 to 500 clients each day, 5 days a week.

We accept online donations!

We accept credit and debit cards (as well as PayPal). You do not need a PayPal account!
Use the option to the bottom left of the PayPal screen to pay without an account.

You can use our PayPal button for tribute donations as well. However, you should designate the person's name and the reason for the tribute before you submit the donation. The memo field for PayPal can be accessed on the donation review page (after you enter all the other information, but before you actually submit the donation) as shown below:
