This Week’s Most Needed Food Closet Items

This Week’s Needs at the Food Closet:  The last two weeks St. Mark’s donated 2 bags of groceries, 1 bag of supplies and  $0 in cash.  Spring has fully sprung and the need to fill the Food Closet’s shelves is as high as ever.  Sadly, donations are down – but a big thanks to those who are contributing what they can  at this time.

Drop off donations at the Food Closet. The Diocese allows food pantries to remain open during Covid. All Saints Food Closet is taking precautions to protect staff, volunteers, customers and donors using a protocol from Second Harvest, the main Food Closet donor. The address and new hours are:

425 Hamilton Avenue, Palo Alto
-M, T, W, F: 9 am-2:30 pm
-Thursday: 9 am to 2:30 pm
(except 12 pm to 1 pm when closed for staff meeting)

Access is via the blue side door that opens onto Hamilton Street. Please call ahead – (650) 325-3663 to let them know you are coming. Please do not drop off food after hours – it brings up a variety of concerns as people often congregate unsafely after hours to go through the food.
