Supporting the Food Bank during COVID-19

On behalf of our staff, board, volunteers and clients, we are grateful for your ongoing support and the many inquiries we have received during this critical time. Following is an updated and consolidated resource for our donors and volunteers to help direct your efforts most effectively:

Food donations

Please consult our NEEDS LIST which is updated on an ongoing basis. While all donations are appreciated, this list includes items for which demand is high and/or supply may be low.

Food donation drop-off times:
Mon 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
Wed 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
Fri 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

Please also review the lists of items that the Food Bank cannot accept as well as non-food items that can be accepted.

To reduce foot traffic in and out of the building, please leave donation in the bins to the left of our side donation door.

Financial donations

You can support the Food Bank from home by giving online. You can make a one-time or recurring gift. The Food Bank assists not only those who meet specific financial qualifications but also those who may exceed these qualifications and are still facing financial difficulty. Financial donations to the Food Bank give our staff the flexibility to purchase in-demand items in bulk and serve as many individuals and families as possible, regardless of income. The items we purchase with private funds can also be shared with other food pantries and social service agencies in outlying areas, if and when they need extra support.

Volunteering

We are anticipating a need for additional volunteers as the COVID-19 crisis continues. In light of this, we are asking anyone interested in volunteering to call the Food Bank at (814) 234-2310. You will be required to complete an application. If possible, complete it in advance and email a copy to volunteer@scfoodbank.org.
