One of the things we like to do for our pantry clients is have a section we call our "pick from" table. Every client gets a specified amount of food that is packed ahead of time, but then there are extra items we like to provide, when possible. For instance, there are always eggs, bread and desserts. Sometimes we even have frozen pizzas! However, the "pick from" table contains those extras which make life so much nicer, things like pickles, olives, ketchup, mustard, cooking sauces, jams and jellies, paper products, dish washing detergent, laundry detergent, hot chocolate, etc.
We purchase the bulk of our food from the Central Pa. Food Bank, but the good people from the Fairfield Area also donate a lot of canned and packaged products. For those of you who want to donate specific products, we invite you to think about our pick from table when you do so.
