Food Drive

Helping Hands Pantry welcomes food drives and appreciates your desire to help us in our goal of providing food relief to the people of northern Winnebago County. To make your drive much more beneficial to us, we suggest you limit your drive to 1-3 items.

Here is a list of the items for which we have the most need:
• Canned corn and green beans
• Any boxed or bagged pasta-spaghetti, penne, linguine, etc.
• Boxed Hamburger Helper type meals-any variety and any brand
• Paper products-limited to toilet paper, paper towels, and Kleenex
• Boxed cereal-any variety
• Boxed potatoes-any variety
• Canned pasta meals-like Ravioli, Beefaroni, Spaghettios, etc.
• Pancake mix and syrup
• Granola Bars
• Fruit snacks
• Cookies
• Boxed cake mixes and frosting

Again, it is most helpful to us if you limit your drive to only 1-3 of the above items. We would also encourage you to ask your donors to check expiration dates. Most items we have listed have a safe shelf life for a few months or more past the date listed, but not for years past the date listed.

Thank you so much for your interest in conducting a drive on our behalf. If you have any questions about conducting a food drive, please feel free to contact us.
