- Canned or boxed fruit juice
- Boxed meals, including complete dinners, Hamburger Helper, pasta meals, instant rice meals
- Dry pasta and rice, instant potatoes
- Snack items, such fruit snacks, granola bars, pop tarts, instant pudding, Jell-O, crackers
- Baby food and baby formula
- Breakfast items (dry cereals, oatmeal, pancake mixes, syrup)
- Baking items such as flour, sugar, spices
Items for personal care and hygiene, such as toothpaste, deodorant, soap, shampoo, razors and toilet paper will also be accepted. Homemade or home-canned goods, fresh food and items that are opened, damaged or perishable cannot be collected.
