If you would like to donate, our Food Banks accept most food and beverage donations, as long as products have not expired and packages remain unopened.

Our Greenhouse – LiftUp believes everyone deserves fresh, health food, so in addition to your garden donations, we are growing produce and herbs! In 2022, we harvested 181 pounds of produce from our greenhouse.
Seasonal volunteers are needed to help prep and clean our greenhouse for the growing season, to plant and care for the crops, to harvest during the season and to help clean it out for the winter. Become a greenhouse volunteer!
