Pantries try to obtain as much of needed food supplies as possible from Feeding America. However, the items listed above are often not available through this source or other bulk-buying options.

The personal care products cannot be purchased by food stamps making them costly essential items for families to purchase on their own.

Thanks for sharing with those in need!
