Your financial contributions enable us to make targeted, discounted, bulk purchases of essential foods and personal care products. Your donations also - quite literally - help us keep the lights on by supporting facility, equipment, and vehicle maintenance.

We know how to stretch a dollar. For example, a $40 donation provides groceries for a family of four for one week. A $400 donation can provide eggs for 12 families for the entire year. A recurring monthly gift of $135 provides a family of three with three meals/day for a full year. Just $20 buys a full holiday meal - turkey or ham plus sides and dessert - for a family of six.

Non-perishable food donations are always welcome. We ask that items are in their original packaging and within the manufacturer's "sell by/best by" date. 


Small non-perishable donations are welcome every day from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm through our Donations Closet located to the left of our receiving garage door. Donations can also be dropped off during any of our posted volunteer shifts.


For large donations and food drives, please email to set up a delivery time or arrange for a pick-up.


Home gardeners wanting to make donations of fresh produce should drop off during posted volunteer shifts. Please do not leave produce in the Donation Closet.


We love our volunteers! Find out more about how you can help.


Groups, organizations, or businesses can sponsor a specific program for EYFP. Select a program your organization feels passionate about - milk, eggs, personal care products, laundry detergent - and sponsor it for a month, a quarter, or a full year.
