Food Donations vs. Monetary Donations?

Posted on: October 14, 2021

At CORA, we often get the question “Should I donate food, or should I just write a check?” The simple answer is, do what makes you feel more connected to our mission, both help us feed those facing food insecurity in our community.


If you prefer to shop and donate food, we just ask that you check in and see what our needs are. You can find this information on our website here, Each month, we curate the food list each to match our inventory and provide families with the food they want.


This month we are requesting:

    • Pasta
    • Canned pasta sauce – (please no glass)
    • Canned fruit – (in juice if possible)
    • Cereal
    • Spices


Monetary donations are important too! We are able to buy food in bulk at wholesale prices, cheaper than food on sale at the grocery store. Your cash donation is going to supply more food for people in need. Also, money that is donated can go toward buying fresh food like meat, produce, dairy, and bread which are all great additions to the shelf stable foods that are donated.


It’s up to you how you want to help us build a community without hunger and we appreciate all of your support!
