Donate to the Food Pantry

The Hospital is committed to providing emergency meal assistance to families and patients who are without financial resources. This service is designated to be an interim solution to the family’s financial need. Our Social Services Department maintains a food pantry to assist these families during their time of need. The food pantry is stocked with single serve items that can be easily and quickly prepared by a nurse or volunteer in the nourishment room and brought to a patient or family member. 

While you are shopping for your family, would you consider adding a few extra items to your cart to assist our patients and families here at the Hospital? A list of needed items is below, or you can download a printable shopping list here. Food items may be dropped off in the Volunteer Office and we will ensure they are delivered to the food pantry.
