Donation Barrels

Donate Food this Holiday Season to Help Local Families! 

Food for People makes it easy to donate! We partner closely with our countywide pantry network to ensure that donations made in a particular community stay in that community to help local residents. Identified by the Food for People logo, donation barrels and boxes can be found at various grocery stores, businesses, and other organizations, making it convenient to drop off nonperishable items anytime.
