Donate Food

A donation table will be set up near the office door on Lombard Road. Please drop off items only during donation hours, when the table is out.

While we are in home delivery mode, it is most helpful if you stick to requests from the following list:

  • Cereal (especially Cheerios!)
  • Shelf stable soup
  • Peanut butter alternatives (ie Sunbutter or Almondbutter)
  • Snacks (regular sizes, please)
  • Soy Sauce
  • Shelf Stable Soy Milk or Almond Milk
  • Dish soap and laundry detergent
  • Personal care items such as shampoo, soap, toothpaste, toothbrush
  • Incontinence products & diapers (larger sizes are more in demand)

Please do not donate: soda, sports drinks, medications, jumbo or single serving sizes.

Arlington EATS typically relies on community donations of food for about 30% of our food supply. Donations also are also our primary source for specialty items such as gluten free foods, peanut butter alternatives and milk alternatives. Thank you!

Donation Drop-Off Hours at Saint John's Church, 74 Pleasant St

Tuesdays from 1-6pm

Donations can be dropped off at the rear of the building on Lombard Street. Tables are set up for contactless drop-off.
