Give FOOD.

Food donations are critical to the ongoing mission of collecting and redistributing thousands of pounds of food to individuals and families in Lindale, Texas who don’t know where their next meals are coming from. By donating today, you’ll be helping a network of 350+ families we serve weekly.


Individual Donations

We gladly accept donations during regular Food Pantry hours. Please see the calendar below for the most updated schedule. 

Extra considerations for donations:

  • Easy to open - pop-top cans that do not require a can opener.

  • Avoid glass containers due to breakage.

  • Mixes (soup, bread, pancake, muffin, etc.) that only require the addition of water to make.
