Food Insecurity Wish List

Free Little Pantry

We stock a Free Little Pantry and Vegetable & Fruit Bin right outside the main entrance to the Owen Brown Interfaith Center.  If you need something, take something. If you have something to share, leave a food donation (see below for a list of suggested items to donate).

Did you know you could set up an ongoing regular donation to UUCC’s Food Insecurity effort? You just sign up and the donation will happen every week, month, every 3 months – whatever works for you. It’s a good way to remember that you want to combat food insecurity in our community. Donate $ online via our Realm database for this cause.  Select “Food Insecurity” from the dropdown “Fund” menu. 100% of your donation will go toward purchasing food. Thank you!

Questions or want to get involved? Please email FoodInsecurity@uucolumbia.net.

  • Soups (pop top preferred)
  • Mac and cheese
  • Granola bars
  • Packs crackers and cheese
  • Toiletries
  • Juice boxes
  • Tuna or canned meats (pop top preferred)

    A list was mentioned today in the service about kinds of foods which are needed. Where can I find that list? Thanks!

    Thank you for the information re Pantry. Who is responsible for stocking the overflow in OBIC cupboard, if there is more food than fits in the Little Cupboard? I have food to donate but need to get it to OBIC.

      Hi Candy,
      If you can, we prefer that you have the food mailed to OBIC. The OBIC staff will put it by our office. As for who will put the food upstairs, Margaret is in charge of organizing that. You can email her at foodinsecurity@uucolumbia.net (or her personal email if you have it).
