We Collect Food Pantry Donations @ The Library
The food in focus for May is canned vegetables. This is an easy one! What is your favorite canned veggie?
If you have large donations it is best to deliver directly to the food pantry. We can help facilitate a drop off time if needed. Call us during regular business hours at 785-336-2377.
