Items To donate to a food bank

Have you ever gone through your cupboards or walked the isles of a store wondering what you should choose to donate? Here are some helpful insights into what things are best to donate and what things are not helpful.

What are the best foods to donate to your local food bank:

Food banks accept dry and canned food donations. What does that actually mean? Choose food that is non-perishable or “shelf-stable”. Basically, any food items that you can keep in your pantry and won’t go bad. Make sure you remember to check the “sell-by” date. Check out our list below of the best non-perishable food items to donate.

  • Peanut butter

  • Canned soup

  • Canned fruit

  • Canned vegetables

  • Canned tuna

  • Canned chicken

  • Canned beans

  • Rice 

  • Oatmeal

  • Pasta

  • Pasta Sauce

  • Ketchup

  • Mustard

  • Mayonnaise 

  • Spices (Salt, Pepper, Chili Powder, Italian Seasoning, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Etc..) 

  • Cooking Oils (Olive Oil, Vegetable Oil, Coconut Oil, Etc..) 

Though this list does not cover everything, it does cover many of the items people go through regularly that need to be replenished. When you are ready to prepare your donations and need some ideas, pull this list up. It is also helpful to think about the items you use regularly or staple items in your diet. Chances are that they are a staple in other family's homes as well. 

personal care & household items:

Personal care, hygiene, & household items are important items that are often forgotten about. These necessities are a true blessing to many families. It is also important to check the sell by and expiration dates on the personal care items, they surprisingly can go bad too. We’ve put together a list of some of the most common personal care / hygiene & household items that are always needed. 

  • Hand Soap

  • Dish Soap

  • Diapers 

  • Baby Wipes

  • Shampoo & Conditioner

  • Body Wash 

  • Feminine Products 

  • All Purpose Cleaner & Disinfectant Cleaner

  • Toilet Paper

  • Garbage Bags

  • Laundry Detergent

Similarly to the list above, a good way to think of what you want to donate is to focus on the items that you use regularly. What are your "go to" items for cleaning or for taking care of you and your family?
