Food Donation Process

We are so grateful for the food donated by the communities we serve and from businesses, organizations, and houses of worship who host food drives and collections year-round.

Donations may be made at any CFA Pantry during their hours of operation.  Please reference CFA’s most need needed items list below when figuring out what to buy to donate. If you would like a receipt, please complete our food donation form and provide a copy of it to a member of our team during the drop-off.

For donations made at CFA Mahwah, please place your donations in the blue CFA bins located near the pantry overhang.
