Donate Food & Goods

Each morning at 5:00 a.m., Pine Street’s kitchen staff, food services trainees and volunteers begin the process of preparing more than 1,000 meals for our shelter guests. Pine Street relies on food donations to help ensure guests receive well-balanced and nutritious meals each day, 365 days a year. 

At Pine Street, the health and wellbeing of our guests is a priority. Many are dealing with a variety of health issues including diabetes, heart disease and hypertension, among others. To ensure a healthy diet for our guests, we work closely with a nutritionist and have implemented dietary guidelines that include low sugar and salt, high protein and whole grains.
