Southside Food Bank

Southside Food Bank

Southside Food Bank

During the Covid-19 Stay-at-Home Mandate we are changing distribution up a little bit…we ask you to stay in your cars or stand in a line 6ft apart and our volunteers will help load pre-packed bags for you. Each car may pick up for 2 families.

Mission: A place of Home, Hope and Hospitality

The only qualification to participate in our food bank is that you show up! More than just a food bank, we’re a community outreach providing a place of home, hope, and hospitality

Home: A place to “Love God, Grow Together and Care for the World”. This is the credo of Hillcrest Church and we feel it simply describes the environment of the Southside Food Bank.

Hope: Hope is the anchor of endurance under trial. Though we can’t meet every need, we can fan into flame the ember of hope through prayer and genuine compassion.

Hospitality: All are welcome without condition! Our staff are always available to talk and pray (if you like).

Distribution: First and third Thursday of each month at 10am to 11:30am

If you would like to donate food to help us serve our community we are in need of the following:

One bag of food consists of: 

2 cans of  vegetables

2 cans of tuna

2 cans of soup

1 can of pasta sauce

1 bag of pasta

1 ramen noodle

1 macaroni & cheese

1 bag of rice

1 bag of oatmeal

Other Items distributed depending upon availability are: cheese, eggs, bread and fresh produce, depending on the season.

(*all items are subject to revision upon availability)

We also have additional miscellaneous food items, cleaning supplies, paper products, and hygiene supplies.

Our Food Bank bin will be available for donation drop offs by the Hillcrest Kids entry in the lower parking lot Monday-Friday from 7am-6pm
