food closet needs

urgent need for drop off and donations by check

Team up with the St. Mark’s Outreach Alliance in supporting the All Saints Food Closet with your donations. Please, check here each week to see the top needed items. Cash donations are also greatly appreciated.

Since St. Mark’s church is closed – no donations should be left there until services can be commenced. Therefore, if you can, please deliver your donations directly at the All Saint’s Food Closet, 555 Waverley St, Palo Alto- M, T, W, F: 9 am-2:30 pm Thursday: 9 am to 6:30 pm via the blue side door that opens on to Hamilton Street. Please call ahead – (650) 325-3663 to let them know you are coming. ****Important****: Please do not drop off food after hours – it brings up a variety of safety concerns as people apparently congregate unsafely after hours to go through the food.

Also, as a new initiative, the Food Closet is doing home deliveries now, three times a week, for the elderly who are unable to leave their homes.

Don’t feel left out if you can’t leave your home to deliver goods – there is another way you can help. You can donate by check as well to purchase shortfall items that are needed. Please write a check to the Downtown Streets Team, and write in the memo line “For Food Closet”. Checks can be mailed to:

Always Needed: non-grocery items: quart size ziplock bags, twist ties, rubber bands, scissors, dish detergent, Fabuloso cleaner, hand sanitizer.
