Fight Hunger With Your Donations

Whether you give financial or food donations, your contributions provide emergency food and much-needed hope to children, seniors, and hardworking families who are navigating life’s unexpected moments.

COVID-19 Updates

We’re still open and serving more families than ever before. See how we’re keeping our staff, our supporters, and those we serve safe.

How Funds Are Used

When you support Families Matter Food Pantry, your donations don’t go to waste. We humbly use every penny and every food item given to reach as many people as we can with life-sustaining nutrition. Because of your contributions, we’re equipped to serve 250,000 lbs. of food to over 950 families every month. But, when it comes to running a food pantry, it’s about much more than food.

Help Us Purchase Life-Giving Food

Families Matter Food Pantry is an official 501c3 non-profit, so you can feel confident that every penny you give goes directly to helping those with food insecurities.

Stock Our Shelves Directly

Financial contributions aren’t your only option. You can also make a huge difference by donating food directly to The Pantry. While organizations and corporate sponsors provide the majority of our food donations, families and individuals in the community also enjoy dropping off food at our facility.

Looking for the easiest way to be an ongoing supporter? Setting up a recurring donation is a convenient option for you. When you do, you’re able to impact more families in need by helping us achieve consistency and steady growth. We’ll be sure to provide you with a year-end giving statement for your records.
