Food Donations

Food donations are critical to the mission of Bethlehem Place.  We accept non-perishable donations of canned, dry or bulk products that are unlabeled, mislabeled, discontinued, past the “best if used by date” or damaged items that are still safe for human consumption.

We also accept perishable items if donated on the day of distribution, such as breads, eggs, or cheese.  Currently, we are unable to accept items that require immediate refrigeration. 

Conduct a Food Drive: We welcome food & fund drives conducted by local churches, neighborhoods, businesses, schools, Scouts, sports teams or any group of dedicated people who understand it takes local action to solve a local problem.  To learn more about organizing a food drive, contact Info@BethlehemPlace.org.

Food Industry donations: Weekly donations from our strategic partners, including grocers, food purveyors and the farming community are critical to our mission.  To learn how to arrange for food donations, please contact Info@BethlehemPlace.org.
