Donating Food

Volunteer

Looking for an opportunity to make a difference in your community? Catholic Social Services may be the answer.

How to Help

We take monetary donations, used and new vehicles, food, furniture, medical equipment, and other items.

HELP CSS HELP OTHERS WITH A FOOD DONATION

CSS runs the largest Food Pantry South of Boston (Solanus Casey Food Pantry), that services approximately 800 walk-ins (singles and families) per month. We also house 75+ homeless families and persons who get assistance from the pantry, and a host of other clients accessing our services. Food donations are greatly appreciated, and any donation is completely tax-deductible on your income tax return. We ask that food be new, packaged and non-perishable.  Canned foods, dry goods and similar items are accepted and appreciated.

Please contact Marc Abdow at the New Bedford office to arrange for food drop-off or for more information about our food pantry and annual food drives.

HOW TO ORGANIZE A FOOD DRIVE

Food drives make great service projects, and are a popular method of collecting food donations. They are widely used among churches, schools, service organizations, the US Postal Service, and many community events.

For tips on how to start a food drive, please feel free to contact your nearest CSS office or food pantry.
