Food Aid

Sunnyvale Community Services runs several food aid programs for qualified clients. In addition to generous donations each week from Second Harvest Food Bank we also rely on donations from individuals and organizations.

We accept any non-perishable items that are within one year of the best by date, but especially items that do not require cooking and are easy to open. Items such as canned tuna and meats, peanut butter, jelly, and dry cereals are always needed.

We accept fresh produce from gardens and fruit trees as well as perishable food that is in commercial packaging and within the use by date.

For a more complete list of requested food items, please visit our Wish List page.


In-Kind Donations

Our client families need many things to help make their lives just a little easier. Families with children need new backpacks each year for school, and new school supplies to start the school year right. Families and individuals also need new household items like cleaning supplies, coffee makers, blankets and dishes.

Please visit our Wish List page for a complete list of unused items you can donate.
