Roosevelt Food Pantry: Give what you can and take what you need
Thank you to everyone who has helped keep our pantry stocked! Let’s continue to be a community that takes care of each other.
CANNED GOODS being removed/donated December 8: As we head into the winter months, it is not safe to keep our canned items in the pantry as swelling poses a food safety risk. So we will be removing canned items on Tuesday, December 8. If you anticipate needing a few extra items, please be sure to get them over the weekend. Take what you need!
ADOPT-THE-PANTRY: To ensure we can keep the pantry safe and stocked, we are asking for volunteers to sign up to adopt the pantry for one week (or more). During your week, we ask that you pick a day to:

  • Check the inventory
  • Discard any perishable, damaged or expired items
  • Contact Sara Luke (sarajaneluke@gmail.com) with any items that seem low (starches, breakfast, protein, meals, etc) and we will use donated funds/food to keep it stocked
  • (If it’s in your budget that week) Replenish the pantry.

We will post a list of suggested/safe items inside the door of the pantry for those checking and donating. Thanks in advance for signing up!
DONATE TODAY: And of course we’ll always welcome your contribution so we can shop and keep the pantry stocked. Donate HERE Roosevelt Food Pantry | MemberHub

Thank you for improving our little piece of the world!
