Your contribution allows us to purchase the food which supplements the daily "rescued" food from grocery stores such as produce, bread/desserts and some dairy. The pantry buys rice, beans, tuna, canned chicken, cereal, oatmeal, peanut butter, pasta and sauce, ramen noodles, canned soup, canned beans, canned fruit and vegetables from the SLO County Food Bank and local grocery stores. We purchase eggs from the Cal Poly poultry unit at a lesser cost than we would get in stores. We also pay a high utility bill to run four large refrigerators and three large freezers.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
DONATE YOUR TIME
We have volunteer opportunities in the mornings and afternoons. All of our opportunities can be scheduled around your busy life.
MORNING OPPORTUNITIES: We have "runners" who pick up food from stores and deliver it to the pantry. This job requires room for boxes in your car or truck and the ability to life 30-40 lbs. We also have a morning crew that stocks the shelves with the food delivered that morning. They prepare the pantry so the afternoon crew has everything they need to hand out food.
AFTERNOONS: In the afternoon volunteers distribute food between 2 and 3:30 P.M.
