Our community is amazing! So many have reached out wondering how you can help! At this time, to minimize public health concerns, we are unable to accept food donations. To best help IPM Food Pantry and our neighbors in need, please consider the following:

Host a virtual food drive by encouraging others to give online through our website or by clicking this link: https://interland3.donorperfect.net/weblink/weblink.aspx….

According to guidance from Feeding America, virtual food drives are preferable to holding collection drives at this time, because we do not want to place any additional unnecessary strain on grocery stores. Because of our relationship with the Freestore Foodbank, we are able to leverage our buying power and source food for families in need.

    Deepest thanks for the great work you are doing.

    I’d love to help. Is IPM providing the snacks for the power packs, or is the request that we provide and assemble the packs? Thanks, Carol Sutto

    Thanks for the question! It is preferable if you collect or provide and assemble the packs yourself, because we are limited to staff only at this time and simply don’t have the resources to assemble them. Assembled Power Packs can be dropped off at either location during pantry hours.

    How many snacks would you like in each power pack?

    It is typically enough for breakfast, lunch and snacks for one day. So a typical Power Pack might have: breakfast (single serve cereal or oatmeal), morning snack (peanut butter crackers or granola bar), lunch (single serve mac and cheese or soup, shelf-stable pudding, fruit snacks or raisins and chips or pretzels), and an afternoon snack (applesauce or fruit cup). Some include a juice box or shelf stable milk.
