Food Pantry Donations & Current Needs


Delaware Township Food Pantry is a donation-based food pantry and relies on your donations to continue to provide our community with essential food and hygiene items.

Our office is open to accept donations anytime during our office hours: Monday to Friday, 9am to 3pm. If you’d like to donate outside of these hours, donations can be left inside the vestibule.

All donations of non-perishable food and hygiene items are accepted. Monetary donations are also accepted. We use monetary donations to buy milk, eggs, meat, and household items to provide to our food pantry clients. We cannot currently accept donations of clothing or other items as we do not have the space.

Donations can be dropped off in our office or in the bin in the lobby. If you prefer, you can call from the parking lot, and a member of staff will come out to your car to collect the donation. We have carts available to assist in collecting your donation.

All donations are very welcome and appreciated!
