In addition to the monthly gift card allotment, Nourish strives to stretch families buying power with support from a small pantry. Provided are prepackaged bags of non-perishable food, household, baby, and personal care needs. Clients self choose needs via an online shopping form each month.
How to help?
Pre-packed food bags contain enough food for a family of three for 2-3 days. Donations of fully prepackaged bags are appreciated, but single items are also needed and welcome. The first Wednesday of each month we collect donated items at 2708 33rd Ave NE, St. Anthony (Faith United Methodist Church), from 4:30 - 6:00 pm. It is a drive thru drop off in the parking lot. Follow the cones and volunteers will remove items from your vehicle.
If you are unable to drop off at that time, email email@example.com with your address and a pickup will be arranged.
Want it to be even easier to donate? Nourish has an Amazon Wish List to make it super simple.
In addition to pantry donations, monetary donations help keep food and household items on hand for the families who utilize the pantry. Please consider a donation today.
Grocery Bag Ideas
If you're packing a full bag, each bag would ideally contain food to feed a family of three for 2-3 days. Nourish serves a diverse clientele and families with specific dietary needs. Please consider packing one of the culturally or dietary specific needs bags. If packing a specialty bag, please label the bag very clearly.
Any questions, suggestions, or ideas, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for helping our community!! ~ Nourish Food Pantry Team

"We receive monthly gift cards to help purchase groceries, as well as pantry and household items. While we have had our basic needs met with the help of Nourish 282, I have been able to tackle some of the harder things that we were not able to before. We have been working hard to get ourselves out of debt. We finally see an end to that projected at the end of this year. It has also allowed me to finally set some money aside to hire an attorney to handle financial issues and custody with my ex husband. We are so grateful for the service provided and look forward to the day we are in a better place, able to give and volunteer with Nourish."
