Storage space is often in short supply at food banks, so prioritization is key.

  1. Money. We can access to lower cost supplies, so a cash donation may go further, plus we’re able to get exactly what students need.
  2. Canned meats: Think beyond tuna & soup, which food banks get tons of. Instead go for canned beef, canned ham, canned chicken, canned salmon. Or hearty ready-to-go meals like beef stew and chili with meat.
  3. Canned vegetables: Everyone donates green beans. Instead, give potatoes, carrots, spinach, peas or any other veggies your family likes.
  4. Canned fruit: Not pineapple. This is the most commonly donated fruit. Any other fruit, particularly those in fruit juice without extra sugar, would be great. Dried fruit works too (raisins, etc.)
  5. Boxed meals THAT REQUIRE ONLY WATER. Hamburger Helper isn’t helpful if you don’t have hamburger.
  6. Low-sugar cereal like plain Cheerios
  7. Peanut butter
  8. Instant oatmeal, instant grits
  9. Cans of beans
  10. Pasta, pasta sauce
  11. Biscuit or baking mixes (again that only require water)
  12. Cans, cartons or boxes of powered and evaporated milk
  13. Snack items for kids to take to school: juice boxes, applesauce containers, granola bars
  14. Diapers in sizes above newborn, plus wipes
  15. Toiletries: toothbrushes, soap, toothpaste, lotion, shampoo & conditioner, warm socks, Chapstick (consider someone living outside this time of year)
  16. Feminine hygiene products: unscented pads will be most universally used, not tampons
  17. Spices like cinnamon, oregano, basil, salt, pepper
  18. Sliced bread. It’s got a long shelf life but always goes immediately.
  19. Bags of apples or potatoes. Ditto.
  20. Chocolate. It’s not a necessity but just a pick-me-up that I would sure appreciate, especially when it comes time to fill stockings.

* Consider donating reusable sturdy shopping bags. Supplies are heavy plus it takes a lot of humility to come to a food bank. Since they’ll likely be walking home or taking public transportation, it’s nice to at least blend in.
