The Parkland Community Library is a dropbox location assisting Parkland CARES Food Pantry as a food collection site! We will collect the four items below to support our Parkland Snack Pack program. The program currently serves over 450 monthly students, aiming to reach 900.
Please consider donating to this worthy cause!
Parkland Community Library continues to partner 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.
Little Free Pantry
The Little Free Pantry at PCL is located next to the book drop-in at the back of the building! The concept is simple – Take what you need, leave what you can. Every one of us needs just a little help now and then.
All pantry items must be:
- Shelf-stable (non-perishable)
- Able to withstand high temperatures
Little Free Pantry Donation Rules
Please adhere to the following guidelines with regard to donations and drop-offs:
- We accept only non-perishable or dry goods, i.e., boxed, canned, and bagged goods.
- Do not leave expired items.
- Do not leave fresh fruit, vegetables, dairy, eggs, or meat. We will be forced to discard any fresh foods found.
- Do not leave any non-food items at the Pantry.
- If the Pantry is already full, do not leave donations on the ground surrounding the pantry.
- If the pantry is full, please come back another time with your donations.
Thank you for your continuing support and generosity!
