Food Pantry

Through food and monetary donations, we are able to provide food to residents in the Mary Lee community on a weekly basis. Because the majority of our residents are low-income, it is critical that we ensure they have enough food to live happily and healthily. By donating to our pantry, you are securing nutrition for all Mary Lee residents.

Our onsite food pantry provides nourishment to 270 individuals monthly

If you have safe, nonperishable food or a food ingredient, we can probably find a way to use it. 
We do value nutrition and care about convenience; we naturally prefer high-value foods that people can easily use.

Whatever you have, please contact us so we can work together to make the best possible use of all of the food resources in our communities.

Organize a Food Drive

Businesses, churches, schools, civic organizations, apartment complexes and other groups are encouraged to sponsor food drives any time of the year to help us fill our shelves.  Food drives provide some of the healthiest and highest-quality food we receive. Food donations also provide a direct connection between donors and residents at Mary Lee.
