Needs List

  • “What food items do you need?” is the most commonly asked question at the Food Bank. As a result of this question and the overwhelming generosity of thousands of individuals, in 2016 we provided more than 311,477 meals to our clients and their families. Our current needs are listed below.  (For Thanksgiving Needs List - click here)
