What are #PeopleFirst Pantries?
The #PeopleFirst Pantry promotes community engagement to address food insecurity. There may be people in our communities struggling with hunger and we might not even realize it. The #PeopleFirst Pantry addresses that need while bringing our community together for the shared purpose of nourishing our neighborhoods.
#PeopleFirst Pantries are open all the time, filling emergency food service gaps during times when the local food pantry is closed and making sure food is available to those in need.
Take What You Need
If you find items inside the pantry you need, take them at no cost.
Give What You Can
Give items you would want to receive. Items that can be donated include:
- Non-perishable food items (noodles, packaged/instant meals, etc.)
- Canned vegetables and proteins (beans, chicken, tuna, etc.)
- Personal care items (toothbrushes, feminine hygiene products, etc.)
- Kid friendly items (coloring books, crayons, card games, etc.)
If you are interested in donating to the #PeopleFirst Pantry, please drop off your donations at the dropbox inside your local Choice Bank.
There is a #PeopleFirst Pantry in every community where there is a Choice Bank. Find the pantry nearest to you below.
