How You Can Join The Movement

Mobile Food Shelf
Food Shelf
Food Donation

 Lifegate Services Food Shelf accepts fresh produce, shelf stable and canned items (unexpired), toiletries, and blankets for emergency situations. Organizations can help support the food shelf by holding food drives during special events or at specific times of the year.

Operational Sustaining Donor Partners

Organizations and individuals can make regular donations to pay for ongoing operational costs associated with running the food shelf. These costs include rent, insurance, transportation, utilities, etc.

Individual Sustaining Donor Partners

The food shelf can purchase healthy foods at wholesale prices through various distributors at discount prices. With these discounts, the food shelf can stretch a cash donation further than an individual who chooses to
donate food items. This means more healthy food for more people in need. Sustaining gifts can be scheduled for deduction automatically from your checking account or credit card.
