Common Pantry

Common Pantry meets the emergency needs of our local community by providing healthy food, kinship and support to help overcome poverty-related challenges. We know our guests by name and serve them through our monthly grocery distribution, Produce Day distribution, senior home delivery, and a weekly hot lunch. We love nutritious and local fresh food and accept toiletries as well.

From the Listing

We are housed within Epiphany United Church of Christ, but have our own door directly on Damen Avenue with a doorbell that you can ring. One of our volunteers or staff will answer the door during our posted donation drop off times.


ProducePedia is a free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries. Each entry includes information on color, taste, and possible uses. People unfamiliar with the vegetable or fruit will learn how to use it, and those who are familiar with it still might learn a fun fact or two!

State Cooperative Extension Web Sites

The Cooperative Extension sites have a wealth of information for any backyard gardener. Once you go to the site (each one if very different from the others) look for a link for “homes and gardens”, “landscape”, “consumer horticulture”, etc. to find information on improving your backyard garden. Neighboring state sites may offer information your own state’s site lacks.
