St. Francis House Food Pantry

Saint Francis House Food Pantry focuses on providing the necessities, but this holiday season, we hope to provide a few additional ingredients as gifts to make family meal time more celebratory and delicious. In order to empower our clients to create flavorful meals with loved ones, and enjoy the meal preparation process, we are encouraging food donations over the holidays to focus on some of the “extras” for the kitchen. Many clients have expressed need for the following items to improve their meals and enable them to follow family recipes.

  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Ketchup
  • Mustard
  • Sriracha sauce
  • Tabasco sauce
  • Vegetable oil
  • Lemon Juice
  • Soy sauce
  • Spices
