Recently a Citywide Communication Council meeting was held to discuss the needs of local food banks. Demand for food bank assistance has multiplied dramatically in light of recent events and the usual suppliers are not able to keep up.

As a combined effort with various faiths, members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are working along with their neighbors to help fill this need.

Many local congregations will be engaging in a large Food Drive effort on Saturday, April 25th. Local leaders will organize the when and where of specific drop-offs and pickups.

What follows is a list of area-specific food banks along with any special requests and drop off locations and times. Please consider identifying the food bank nearest you and contributing as you are able.
