Food, Clothing & Diapers

Neighbors Helping Neighbors

When people face hunger, they often struggle to meet other basic needs as well, such as housing, employment, and healthcare. That’s why Partners INW is committed to more than providing food for people in need. Over the course of the year we distributed around 2 million pounds of food, 300,000 diapers and 85,000 pounds of clothing through our clothing bank. If you have items you wish to donate please consider Partners INW.


Food, diapers and hygiene items may be dropped off at the food bank with a staff member or volunteer. 

Food Donations: Monday - Friday: 8 am - 4 pm   [ Far West Food Bank Entrance Door Number 4 - Ring Door Bell ]
Diapers and Clothing: Monday - Friday: 8 am - 4 pm  [ Front Lobby ]

We often get questions about what food and hygiene items are okay to donate. 

Here are a few simple guidelines to follow for your donation:
