Second Harvest accepts all nonperishable items (foods that do not need to be frozen or refrigerated). Due to the volume of donations, we prefer non-glass containers for safety reasons. When collecting food for your drive, please also consider nutritional food items that are low in sodium/salt and sugar. Whole grain and whole-wheat items are also very much needed for any type of bread, cracker, rice and pasta!
FRUITS AND VEGETABLES
Shelf-stable vegetable or fruit juice
Canned meat (tuna and chicken)
Dried beans, lentils or peas
We also accept:
Disaster supplies (MRE’s, emergency kits, etc.)
Where can I drop off my food donation?
We accept donations from 7:30 a.m. through 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday at two locations: 700 Edwards Avenue in the Elmwood Warehouse District, or at our Lafayette location, 215 E. Pinhook.
