Needs List

  • “What food items do you need?” is one of the most commonly asked questions at the Food Bank. As a result of this question and the overwhelming generosity of thousands of individuals, in 2017, we provided more than 351,560 meals to our clients and their families. Our current needs are listed below.  (For Thanksgiving Needs List - click here)
