If you’re a gardener, you’re surely no stranger to too many zucchinis. We gladly accept fresh-from-the-garden produce from local gardeners and community gardens. Or, when you’re planting your garden consider planting a row for the Food Pantry!
Donations can be dropped-off at the Food Pantry during our regular donation hours.
For more information, contact Ricardo Garcia, Senior Pantry Programs Manager (708) 386-1324 ext. 1104.
Local grocery stores and retailers can help eliminate food waste by donating products that are nearing their expiration date, or those with minor cosmetic blemishes.
Logistics for managing food rescues are tailored to meet the needs of each retailer, and Food Pantry staff hold food safety handling certificates. Both state and federal ‘Good Samaritan’ laws protect both the donor retailers and the receiving agency from liability.
To join our Food Rescue program, contact Ricardo Garcia, Senior Pantry Programs Manager (708) 386-1324 ext. 1114.
