Food Pantry needs for the holidays

Copperopolis Community Food Pantry

This is the time of year when many individuals and community groups start planning donations and  food drives for the food pantry. We thought it might be helpful to make a list of commonly needed items to help answer the question, “What do you need?”

We need supplies of non-perishable foods in their original unopened packaging, i.e. canned or boxed items. As always we ask that no expired items be donated as we are not allowed to distribute them to families.

Soup, especially cream of mushroom                          Sugar
Pumpkin                                                                                  Salt
Beans (canned or dry)                                                             Pepper
Rice                                                                                         Soy sauce
Boxed potato mixes (mashed, au gratin)                                Mayonnaise
Spaghetti or tomato sauce                                                       Olives
Pasta                                                                                        Mushrooms
Mac and Cheese
Peanut butter
Cake mixes
Cranberry sauce
Green Beans
Cooking oil
Salad dressing

Items may be dropped off at Lake Tulloch Bible Church on the third Thursday of the month during our regular distribution. Otherwise please call David or Lorraine Crawford at 785-5367. To learn more about the pantry please visit our website at
