The Westmoreland Food Bank appreciates your support of our mission. The following outlines guidelines for non-perishable and perishable donations.
All non-perishable donated items must:
Be non-perishable. This includes canned or boxed items, juices, pasta, canned meats, sauces, vegetables, prepared foods, etc.
Have the original manufacturers label. We are unable to redistribute any items missing this label.
Be free from any obvious defect or contamination. This includes popped tops or bulging lids, as well as visible mold or rust on cans or bottles.
Items we cannot accept include:
- Homemade goods or canned items
- Jarred baby food
- Prescription drugs
- Any item that has been opened or has a broken seal
Our most needed items include:
- Peanut butter
- Boxed meals such as mac and cheese or Hamburger Helper
- Hearty canned soups or stews
- Canned or pouched tuna, chicken or salmon
Because we deliver food to pantries and agencies virtually every working day of the month, we have a continuous outlet for perishable foods, which are so important to dietary health. Westmoreland Food Bank can pick up donations of unsold products from businesses that are interested in seeing that good but unsold products do not go to waste.
Produce and bread products are picked up from local grocery stores and bakeries on a regular schedule. If you would like to be added to our list of regular stops, please contact the Westmoreland Food Bank.
If you have perishable foods that you would like to donate but are unsure if we can accept them, please call and a member of our staff will help determine the suitability of your donation.
