A Team Effort
By holding a food drive with your friends, family, or coworkers, you can help put an end to hunger and provide foods that people in our community need most.

Most-needed Food Items
Non-perishable items can be used for both our BackPack Program and direct distribution to clients through our partner agencies. Some wish list items include:
- canned fruits and vegetables
- peanut butter
- canned tuna and chicken
- dry pastas
- boxed macaroni and cheese
- canned soups
Note: Perishable, homemade, and home-canned items cannot be accepted.
Donations can be dropped off during regular business hours. When entering the Food Bank of the Southern Tier parking lot, park in the visitor parking area to the right and enter through the Main Entrance. Your donation will be handled in the front lobby area and a receipt provided for your records. If the volume of food is too large to be carried into the lobby, you will be asked to drive around to the loading dock area where unloading assistance will be available.
