How to stretch your donation dollars

The Shepherd’s Pantry is grateful for all your donations. If you are thinking of buying food to donate to the Pantry please note that we can purchase food at area Food Banks at very favorable prices. This is because the Food Banks are able to purchase overstock, closeout and code date items in very large quantities. We can usually purchase at least three times as much food per dollar from the Food Banks than at area supermarkets.

So we can stretch your donation dollars to feed more needy families.
