This Week’s Needs at the Food Closet: Dear Food Closet Donors: Got Halloween candy leftovers – the Food Closet will gladly accept your excess treats! This week there was a good selection of Halloween treats, but just in case there is still some you’d like to take out of temptations way – go ahead and donate 🙂 The last three weeks donations have been stellar – 21 bags of food donations, several also of needed non-food supplies (yay, rubber bands too!) and a cash donation. Your support of the Food Closet is amazing and more appreciated than words can convey.
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.
Donating by Check: You can also donate by check. Check donations will be used to purchase needed shortfall items. Please write a check to the Downtown Streets Team, and write in the memo line “For Food Closet”.
Checks can be mailed to:
Project Manager Downtown Streets Team
