Your gifts at work

Each morning at Ashland Emergency Food Bank we greet new and familiar friends, and we often hear their stories. Sometimes it’s a tale of triumph: After living in her car, “Amelia” has found a job as a caretaker. And sometimes we share news of illness, job loss or family strife: “Maria’s” grown, schizophrenic son is missing and suicidal.

Whatever the moment, the Food Bank is here to provide kindness, respite and food that will sustain physical and emotional health while other problems get sorted out.

Your gift to Ashland Emergency Food Bank makes it possible for us to keep the lights on and the shelves filled. Please join us as we pursue the AEFB mission: to ensure that no one in our community goes to bed hungry.


To donate non-perishable foods, hygiene supplies and other grocery items:

Food donations may be dropped off at the Food Bank during our regular business hours. We would enjoy thanking you in person! Otherwise, you may make donations at any time using the bin on the south side of our building at 560 Clover Lane.

While our primary focus is food, our customers are also grateful for hygiene and household cleaning products.

Special dietary needs:

If you wish to donate foods that will specifically benefit those with food allergies, diabetes, and other types of conditions requiring dietary restrictions, click here for a guide to product selection. For some customers with particular health challenges, organic products are especially appreciated.

Join the green bag brigade:

Ashland Food Project provides nearly 40% of our nonperishable donations. Every other month, more than 2,000 AFP donors send us food via those magic green bags. To learn more and to sign up, visit the Ashland Food Project website at:

We love your harvest:

We'll gladly find a home for your extra zucchinis or surplus of greens. Bring your extra produce by anytime we are open. Our customers will be delighted to receive your home-grown fruits and vegetables.

Although we run a lean ship, contributions are necessary to pay our bills. You can be sure that your gift will be carefully used and much appreciated.
