Q: What food items does the food bank accept for donation, and what do they not?

A: The Placer Food Bank accepts both perishable food items such as fruit and vegetables, as well as non-perishable food. The most needed items include:

  • Dried pastas, rice and beans
  • Cereal
  • Peanut butter (plastic containers only)
  • Canned fruit and vegetables
  • Canned tuna

The Placer Food Bank does not accept clothing, household items or furniture. Donations can be delivered to the food bank’s warehouse between 6:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday; Fridays, 7 a.m. to 12 p.m. , or by appointment. No time to shop? Donors can visit the Placer Food Bank’s Web site to fill a virtual grocery bag. Also, through the Placer Food Bank’s partnership with Feeding America and other hunger-relief organizations, the food bank can leverage each $1 in cash donations to purchase $17 worth of groceries; cash donations can be made online, by mail, or at the food bank offices.
