They also accept small canned/packaged food donations anytime — some specifics are listed on the needs list. They accept left-overs from catered meals daily until 6 pm (if later, please call ahead to arrange). They accept and will pick up large food donations directly from local businesses (based on needs & storage capacity) preferably with an inventory list, expiration dates, and estimated values (for a gift receipt and tax purposes). They accept or pick up large food donations M-F, 8 am – 2:30 pm. Other days/or later times need to be arranged.
