Donating Food to the STEAC Food Closet

STEAC distributes almost 130,000 pounds of food annually, providing over 80,000 meals to those in need. Food drives are very important to STEAC, freeing up monetary resources that can be used on other STEAC services such as rental assistance and education programs.

Due to the sheltering in place, two major food drives for STEAC were cancelled, which would have brought in up to 20,000 pounds of food. As a result, STEAC is in need of ongoing food donations to be able to serve low-income community members who are struggling even more during this crisis.

Those wanting to donate food can drop off at our Food Closet at 642 Hawthorn (parking lot behind St. Martin's church) on Tuesdays from 11 am to 1 pm. STEAC is following all of the social distancing guidelines and sanitizing all equipment and surfaces in preparation for the drop off.

Food donations should be limited to non-perishables. At the present time we cannot accept fruit or produce. Donations should not be taken to the STEAC office.

Visit at any time to see the most needed items.

In addition, STEAC would like to obtain some clean homemade cloth face masks to have available at the STEAC Food Closet for volunteers. If you (or someone you know) have some to donate, they can can be dropped off at the STEAC Food Closet (642 Hawthorn in Davis) on Tuesdays from 11-1 pm.

Thank you!
