VEAP relies on donations of all sizes to feed families and individuals in our community. Donations can be dropped off from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. There is no need to make an appointment. Simply pull around to the back of the building (stay in right lane when arriving if possible; you do not need to wait behind participants in the left lane for food). A volunteer will greet you at Door 4 to collect items right from your vehicle. We can also accept financial donations at Door 4 during normal business hours, and will provide you with a receipt.
In addition to shelf-stable food and fresh produce, VEAP also accepts and highly encourages donations of household products like laundry detergent, soap, diapers, paper towels, shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant and all other home and personal hygiene products (including feminine hygiene items and adult diapers). We also accept pet food for our visitors with furry ones at home, as well as children’s books (baby board books, chapter books and middle/high school books) At this time, we can only accept frozen and refrigerated products from organizations in the food industry and items must be individually labeled with ingredients & source/origin information.
