From the second largest food pantry in Hamilton County, every year, the Samaritan Center distributes over 45,000 pieces of food to our neighbors in need, totaling approximately $100,000 in aid. We can only do this because of the kindness of our friends in this community. Thank you for considering helping us feed our community.

Although we accept any non-perishable food donation, the following items are some of our most needed Food Pantry items:

  • Canned Fruit
  • Canned Greens
  • Corn Meal/Corn Bread
  • Grits
  • Ketchup/Mustard/Relish
  • Mac & Cheese
  • Mayo
  • Pasta Dinners
  • Rice Dinners
  • Salad Dressing

You can bring all donated items to our front office during business hours or to our donation dock as well. Thank you for your support. We appreciate it greatly!
