Wow. The community has responded and our plastic bag bin is full again. Maybe I should send another gentle reminder that the food pantry also needs money. We just spent $286.00 at Aldi so we’d have fresh milk, produce, crackers and bread for tomorrow. It’s a twice-a-week shopping experience for me. A few other shoppers are buying cereal, pasta, pasta sauce, fresh eggs and other goods as needed. Your monetary contributions are stretched and always appreciated, and none of our board, staff or volunteers are paid. See MoreSee Less

So you all take fresh food donations as well as non-perishable? I have some donations!

Where is your plastic bag bin?

FV Emergency Food Pantry is SO well managed and run by volunteers with hearts to help. SINCERE THANKS to each volunteer….and each contributor‼️❤️ “The measure of our love for God is the love we have one for another.”

As a volunteer at the FVEFP, I can tell you how heartbreaking it is when we are halfway through the shift, and there is very little food left over for our clients. There are days when we have an abundance of items to distribute, but sadly, that is not always the case.

It's wonderful people are helping people, but you obviously have more money than I do I spend about $300 a month on groceries. I do have to make them stretch at the end of the month things get low but I may not eat all I desire but I have enough to eat. I think that anyone who needs help should reach out but they also should make wise choices to make their food last. Some people out there are elderly or homeless and are to proud to ask for help.Their friends or neighbors, family or church should drop off a bag of groceries sometimes just to help without the needy person or family having to feel like they are belittling themselves to ask for help. Believe me the signs are there when someone needs help you just have to look for them. Sometimes it's not food or maybe the yard mowed or something around the house they just can't do by themselves.

Fuquay Varina Emergency Food Pantry

We have been so blessed with donations this year. There have been some spectacular food drives, and yesterday, two ladies delivered 260 gallon-sized bags filled with dog and cat food ready for distribution. They also brought shelf milk, peanut butter, hygiene items and lots of spices for cooking. Thank you to all for making a lot of Christmas wishes come true. See MoreSee Less

I'm coming by with our donations from our Nutcracker and candy canes tomorrow!

Such a kind and generous Community. Many blessings as well, to all of you who make it possible to help those in need.

Can you accept opened bags of dry dog foods? We have a dog that has recently developed food sensitivities, requiring us to experiment with different protein sources, some that she hasn't tolerated. I hate to throw the reject foods out, but most of the rescue groups will not accept previously opened bags of kibble.

I Love this Place❤️

How wonderful ❤️

Thank you so much

Is there anything specific you all are low on right now that people could donate?
