While the Food Bank depends on corporate retail donors, government programs and major suppliers for much of the food and other products it distributes, we never lose sight of the importance of the individual’s gift. One person … one company … one farmer … one civic organization … the Food Bank of the Albemarle is grateful for whatever you are able to contribute.
We graciously accept any donations. Whether agricultural surplus of fresh produce, goods from your garden or staples from your cabinets, your donations will improve the lives of so many. The Food Bank is also in need of canned items such as meats, proteins, vegetables, fruits and soups; dry goods such as pasta, cereal, rice and dried beans.
In addition, toiletries, personal hygiene items, toilet tissue and laundry soap are very much needed to help families. These are necessary essentials that they cannot obtain with food stamp benefits.
