Procedures are in place to comply with state requirements in reference to limited contact for the safety of our clients and volunteers. Clients needing food will remain outside of the Pantry and we will bring items out to them. This means we will not be gathering household information at this time during the corona virus. Gathering of statistics will resume when it is safe for people to enter the Pantry once again.

Items needed incude macaroni and cheese, corn, noodles, saltine crackers, pork and beans and shampoo. The West Alexandria Food Bank is open Mondays and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to noon to serve anyone in need, at 20 East South Street.

Contact the Foodbank at 839-1615 for additional information.

We want to thank all those who have given so generously monetarily and through food donations during this time and to those who continue to support us faithfully throughout the year.
