Non-perishable goods are always in short supply at our Food Pantry. We usually need canned vegetables, rice, pasta, cake mixes, breakfast cereal, canned tuna and chicken, canned or packaged soups, instant mashed potatoes, Jell-O, instant coffee, cocoa, and peanut butter. Fresh produce in season is always welcome, too.

Gift cards from Acme and Food Lion supermarkets are also helpful.

Remember: food drives make excellent projects for Scout groups, neighborhood associations, school and church clubs, etc.

Where to Deliver Food

Food can be dropped off at the Little Sisters’ convent at 411 N. Poplar Hill Avenue in Salisbury.
