Items Currently Needed

July 2020

Please note: we offer the list immediately above because our food shelf and storage spaces are very limited, and we either have plenty of these items or they are just too difficult for us to store!   

Please note: we can NOT accept ​any homemade products like preserves, baked goods, etc. no matter how tasty they might be. This is due to food safety regulations.
