The First MB Food Pantry is a temporary solution to provide nutritious and balanced food to anyone in need. (Other household items may be available upon request.)
We have several opportunities for you to help!
1. Food Prep and Distribution: Each week volunteer teams work together to sort food items, pack grocery bags, prepare and pack lunch bags, and distribute food to families on Saturday mornings. If you would like to help in any of these areas, please sign up here! (This schedule changes weekly, so please sign up each week based on your interest and availability!)
2. Food Donation: We are currently accepting donations to stock our Food Pantry shelves.
You can donate food in two ways: sign up to donate large quantities of food, or bring items of your choice from our suggested shopping lists.
Sign-up to donate large quantities of food:
Click one of the links below to view the list of food items needed for that week. Click 'SignUp' on as many items as you'd like, then click 'Submit and Signup' at the bottom of the screen to select the quantity of each item on the following screen. If an item does not specify 'case' we are requesting individual items, but will of course accept cases!
In addition to the above food item requests, we welcome additional miscellaneous items:
- Gift cards (Dillons, Walmart, Target) will be used for specific needs, such as: perishables, diapers, formula, hygiene products, etc.
- Laundry soap
- Toilet paper
- Hand sanitizer, sanitized wipes
Donation drop off days:
Please bring items to the Main Office Door (west of the playground). Items can be left on the table inside the first door of the office.
Mondays and Wednesdays | 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Drive-through pick-up: Saturdays 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Anyone in need can come to the covered drive-through at the east entrance of our facility for curbside grocery pick-up.
Delivery: We are working with our community impact partners to deliver food and supplies to people throughout the city.
If you are in need of specific, essential items, we'd love to help you. Please complete this need request form and we'll be in touch!
