Food Collection

September 2023

The Parkland Community Library is a dropbox location assisting Parkland CARES Food Pantry as a food collection site!

Parkland CARES is seeking donations of
Snack Pack items
Small Cans of Chicken Noodle Soup
Small Cans of Tuna
Chef Boyardee Products
Mac and Cheese

Please consider donating to this worthy cause!

We are pleased to announce our continued partnership with our local food pantry, Parkland CARES. We will continue to collect food donations for those in need.

With their help, we established a permanent donation bin located in our front entryway for our patrons to place their items. This greatly benefits the food pantry since donations can now be accepted during the library’s hours at your convenience. We also have a dedicated volunteer who comes once a week to deliver the donations directly to the food pantry.

Approximately 27% of the Parkland community is currently food insecure, and we are proud to assist the food pantry with its mission to end hunger in our community.
