Our free community fridge and pantry are open Wed-Sun from 10am-5pm.
No documentation is required and no questions are asked - come by anytime during cafe business hours to pick out groceries from our free community fridge and pantry! The pantry area in the cafe's front room is staffed by a friendly volunteer host who can bag up groceries and answer any questions you might have.
The pantry is stocked entirely by the community, and we gladly accept donations at the cafe during all business hours. Donations to the fridge and pantry must be unopened and unexpired, and we can't accept any home prepared meals or raw meats. This month, community members have specifically requested donations of:
Ramen noodles (or anything cooked with just hot water!)
Hot cocoa packets
Snacks (Chips, Crackers & Cookies)
Dog and cat food
Band-Aids / First Aid Supplies
Hygiene supplies, esp. sanitary wipes and menstrual cups
We keep a running list of requested items at the pantry, and add to it when our volunteers return from distributing pantry supplies on mobile outreach visits. If you're able to contribute any of these items to the fridge and pantry, we'll gladly do our best to distribute them to the people who have asked for them.
Visiting the pantry? Find us at 796 Monroe St. in Eugene, Wednesday through Sunday from 10am to 5pm.
