Donate Food and Food Drives

Rebecca Fricke & Niri UU

 

Non-perishable food is always needed and welcomed in our Food Pantry.  Feel free to come by with any non-perishable items during our open hours or by special arrangement.  We appreciate everything, but here is: a list of the most wanted food items in our pantry.

We always welcome donations of personal care items as well (also listed here).

Want to organize a community food drive?

Please let us know if you’re organizing (or would like to organize) a Food Drive!
Contact Niri, our Pantry Coordinator at 549-3968 ext 104, or email her at: niri@amherstsurvival.org.

We can put it on our calendar (so we can plan for it) and offer additional support!

COMING IN MAY: THE STAMP OUT HUNGER POSTAL FOOD DRIVE!

On Saturday, May 14th the National Association of Letter Carriers will host the national STAMP OUT HUNGER FOOD DRIVE. People throughout the country are invited on that Saturday morning to put a bag of donated nonperishable (canned) food by their mailbox.  Letter carriers pick up these food donations and distribute to food pantries across the country, including in our community! At the Center, this day is our biggest single day food drive.  

If you’re interested in volunteering the afternoon of May 14th and help the Center sort these donations, contact Carleen Basler, our volunteer coordinator, at carleen@amherstsurvival.org or by phone at 549-3968 ext. 111.

Thank you!
