What to donate?

Hunger Task Force is committed to providing healthy options in each of these categories to the organizations within our free and local emergency food network, offering fresh items whenever possible. The Hunger Task Force MyPlate has changed the basics of local hunger relief, targeting healthy, nutritious food donations from the community over highly processed, boxed foods like boxed macaroni & cheese and ramen noodles.

When choosing items to donate from the grocery store shelf, think about fruit packed in its own juices; low- and no-salt vegetables; low-fat dairy foods; lean meats and whole grain foods. When in doubt, look to our Preferred Food Items (below) to know what foods to donate.

Fruit in 100% Juice

Low Sodium Vegetables
