Community Pantry Program

FoodShare’s Community Pantry service supports members of the community experiencing financial hardship by providing access to fresh fruit and vegetables, protein and dairy products as well as a range of pantry staples. Frozen pre-prepared meals and some household items are also available as well as dog and cat food for pet owners.
