    Contribute in-kind items for our new homeless food packs: We are tailoring our food packages as much as we can at the food shelf for each household.  One of the things we noticed is that we need food packs specifically for people experiencing homelessness. These items are challenging to source from the food bank system.  The following items will be used to create food packs for homeless individuals:

    • EasyMac/Cup of Noodles
    • Heat-and-eat foods
    • Cheese or peanut butter crackers
    • Beef jerky
    • Trail mix and nuts
    • Dried fruit
    • Disposable forks/spoons/knives

    Please bring these items to our Midway Food Shelf.

We welcome food donations back at our food shelf sites!

Beginning in July 2021, we are requesting that all food donations be delivered directly to our food shelf sites once again. We will begin opening up our Merriam Park Community Center site to our senior programs and thus encourage all donors to bring donations directly to the food shelves again.

If you have a larger donation (a car full or larger), it is helpful to give us a heads up so we can know when to expect you. Please contact us so we can schedule your drop-off. Click below for our locations and hours.
