Supporting WCFP

  • Send a check 

  • Donate online thru Paypal

  • Shop using Amazon Smile

  • Direct Your Dollars


We accept most all types of food donations.  

The most common items we generally need are: 

  • boxed potatoes

  • jelly

  • macaroni and cheese

  • hamburger/tuna helper

  • instant oatmeal

  • canned vegetables/fruits
