Donnelly Food Pantry

“ For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.”  Matthew 25:35

The Donnelly Food Pantry is a ministry of the Donnelly Bible Church (which is an approved Partner Agency with the Idaho Food Bank) helping to meet the nutritional, financial, emotional and spiritual needs of others through Christ’s love and the generosity of the community. We strive to foster a caring atmosphere, treating each person with dignity and respect. We are located next to the fire station in Donnelly and are open every Thursday from 4 pm - 6 pm (doors close at 5:45 pm) distributing food boxes. At Thanksgiving and Christmas the Food Pantry distributes food boxes that contain a complete turkey or ham dinner. As a Partner Agency with the Idaho Food Bank we are able to receive food shipments twice a month, this however only covers a fraction of the need. We serve approximately 150 households in the greater Donnelly area, supplementing their food, clothing, and financial needs. We also have a wood bank, from which we can provide short term help of firewood. On a monthly basis we serve a total of between 500-600 people representing approximately 150+ children, 350+ adults and 100+ seniors. Monetary donations by cash or check, made payable to Donnelly Bible Church and marked Food Pantry is the most helpful way to assist. We are able to buy the food items needed most at discounted prices, allowing us to distribute a greater amount each week. Additionally the giver receives a tax deduction. 100% of donations goes directly to the purchase of food or providing financial assistance. We will of course also gladly accept your donations of non-perishable food items, which can be brought to the Pantry or church during our open hours.
