Food donations

Food Donation Impact 2021
Thanks, in large part, to food donations from individuals, groups, and corporations, Caring for Friends provided 12 million pounds of food to hungry friends last year. We are always in need of frozen protein, canned items, as well as nonperishable snack foods for our Snack Bags. In addition, everyday pantry items—such as spices, herbs, and oils—are needed to keep a well-stocked commercial kitchen.

We are in dire need of pantry items due to inflation and supply chain issues. See what we need and how you can host a food drive at your school, work, or community organizations.

Drop-offs at our warehouse are welcomed:

  • Monday to Friday, 9 AM to 4 PM
  • Saturdays 8 AM to 11 AM

Huge donations should be brought in before 3 PM — please call before-hand to give the team a heads up when you’re coming and what you’re bringing.

Manufacturers and stores interested in donating food, please call (215) 464-2224.

If you can’t donate food in person, learn about our VIRTUAL food drive.


Caring for Friends typically accepts and distributes more than $1.5 million in donated meals and food per year, which is not possible without generous donations!
