Ongoing Client Needs


This includes non-perishable food items (unopened packages, not expired), fresh produce, refrigerated and frozen items.
Clients can receive food from the DMARC side of our pantry once per calendar month. If they need more food later in the month, they can visit our “Anytime Room” which is entirely stocked by donations from the public, grocery stores, and local restaurants.

Items popular with our clients include Jasmine rice, ramen noodles, canned salmon, canned chicken, canned vegetables and fruit, dried beans, and baking staples (flour, sugar, spices, sauces, condiments). We also welcome donations of fresh produce, refrigerated items (such as eggs, milk, cheese, bacon), and frozen meats and vegetables.
