What kind of produce do our pantries have?

Our pantry operates on a surplus basis, which means that the food they receive in bulk is not always consistent in product; however, pantry’s will have a variety of food to choose from, from frozen to no-frozen.

Healthy food is a priority in our pantries, therefore many pantries stock produce that will assure a healthy diet, not simply a low-cost one.
