The pantry runs completely on donations from the community. Donations can be dropped off at the Maplewood Community Center. Checks can be made out to Garden City Our H.O.M.E. Pantry. Monetary donations go directly to purchasing food/hygiene items for the pantry shelves.
Suggested food donations are as follows:
- Peanut butter and jelly
- Canned tuna/chicken
- Macaroni and cheese
- Canned beans
- Boxed potatoes
- Canned/boxed pasta
- Mustard and ketchup
- Toilet paper
- Feminine products
-Other hygiene products
A household can shop at the pantry once a month. Twelve visits a year. The pantry does offer 'emergency food bags' to anyone in a food emergency at anytime.
The amount of food a family receives is based on the number of people in their household. For each member in the home, 10 lbs. of food can be received. The limit, however, is 50 lbs. a visit. For example, a family of 6 will receive 50 lbs. of food a month.
