About Our Food

The food we give to you consists of canned goods and other non-perishable items. We try to also have fresh milk and fresh meat for you. We usually have bread, baked goods, fresh produce, and fresh fruit. Our goal is to provide food for a balanced diet.

We can give you toiletries, household products, and pet foods when they are available.

If you have dietary restrictions, allergies, or other food preferences, please let us know and we will try to accommodate you.

Our food has been donated in good faith by caring individuals, businesses, and civic groups. We carefully check to insure that you only get fresh food, but it is your responsibility to check the food before you serve it. Before receiving your food, we require that you sign your client card, releasing the Mandarin Food Bank from liability for any unintended consequences from the use of the food. This also helps us to identify any problems and make corrections.
