The Blue Door Pantry is open Tuesdays from 9:30 to help you fill your shelves.
The Blue Door Pantry is always a busy place. Friends gather, and “shop” for much needed grocery items and gently used clothing. We are always grateful for financial and food donations to help keep the shelves stocked! Please note: The entrance is through the Blue Door at the back of the building.
Through generous donations, The Blue Door Food Pantry always holds with a wide range of family needs.
The summer season is almost over and children have returned to school. We really need your help so that no child goes to school hungry. The number of people needing assistance has grown at a very frightening pace. Up to the end of April we assisted over 2800 people. In all of 2022 we helped close to 2600. The increase is staggering. Our families are hungry and the Food Pantry is CRITICALLY SHORT on: Fruit Cups & Pudding cups, Cereal, Juice Boxes, Canned Vegetables and Canned Fruit, Canned meats of all kinds, Dry Pasta, eg. Macaroni & Spaghetti, Cookies, Toothpaste & Toothbrushes Bar Soap and ALL Toiletries. If you are able to add one or two of these items to your shopping list and donate it to the DC, our clients are always deeply appreciative. OUR FAMILIES NEED YOU.
