Thank you for all of the food donations which we receive at the food bank. We appreciate everyone’s help. Right now as the season changes, the shelves are getting bare.
We’ve received numerous questions about how to donate to Heartland Hunger & Resource Center, what we need at the food bank and where the donations can be given
Donations can be dropped directly at HH&RC : 163 Thula St. Bldg 3, #5 on Wednesday 4:30-6:30. There is a drop box outside after hours. Our mailing address is Heartland Hunger & Resource Center, P.O. Box 1929, McCall, Idaho 83638. HH&RC is a 501(c)3 organization. If a tax donation receipt is needed, please leave contact information.
Just a few reminders about donations. We can’t take the following:
- Opened packaging
- Home cooked, canned products
- Baby food at this time, except formula
- Dented or bulging cans
- Out of date items (older than six months)
Each month we’re specifying a particular food to donate. September is “Healthy Snacks,” snacks which are low in sugar and fat. Suggestions are crackers, cheese, yogurt, rice cakes, peanut butter , pretzels, dried fruit, fresh fruit, etc. October will be “Beans”: Chili, Pork & Beans, Canned Beans, Bean Soup.
In addition to the staples , we’re trying to provide food that is less “quick fix” and more nutritious for the families. Bulk foods or those in large packaging are often cheaper, of better quality and go farther. Starred * items are those we never seem to have enough of.
Unsweetened cereal, like corn flakes, Cheerios, Rice Crispies, puffed
Dried gravy, sauce, tomato sauce mixes
Rice, regular and brown, rice mixes
Canned meats, tuna
