Pantry Needs

Are you looking to hold a food collection to benefit IFPO? 

Our Pantry Needs list changes, based on our inventory.


If your group is planning to hold a food drive, consider collecting just 1 or 2 items from the list. The IFPO sees over 300 clients per week! That means we can go through at least 300 cans of soup in one week alone! 

A bag full of just 1 item is greatly appreciated!

It makes sorting, storing and distributing much easier!

The Interfaith Food Pantry of the Oranges is always in need of the following unexpired, non-perishable items. We strive to offer healthy choices to our clients.

  • Canned Tuna, Canned Chicken, Canned Salmon

  • Soup (hearty, low-sodium preferred)

  • Jelly (plastic container)

  • Peanut Butter

  • Protein Meals (chili with meat, pasta & beef, beef stew, etc)

  • Beans (canned or dried)

  • Rice (1 pound bags)

  • Pasta sauce (cans) or canned tomatoes (no or low sodium preferred)

  • Hot & Cold Cereals (no sugar preferred)

  • Boxed milk and packages of dried milk

  • Canned Fruit (in juice, not syrup, preferred)

  • Diapers: size 4, 5, 6* 

  • Baby wipes 

  • Unopened, unexpired baby food and formula

 * Full packages of diapers preferred

     We also accept open/partial packs
