We are looking for donations of all sorts, including food, monetary donations, and volunteer time.
Introducing our Red Bucket Drop Program! The Red Bucket Drop allows you to drop non-perishable food items at convenient locations around the community. Our Red Buckets are located at City Market by the customer service desk and at Safeway by the front door. Non-perishable and perishable food can also be dropped off at Gunnison Country Food Pantry (GCFP) on Monday and Wednesday from 10:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 pm. Excluding holidays. Or, by arrangement with a phone call to GCFP.
Food items which are always needed are:
- dried pasta and spaghetti
- peanut butter
- jam and jelly
- oatmeal, instant or regular
- variety of canned beans
- canned corn, tomatoes and vegetables
- canned chicken or tomato soup
- canned tuna
- canned chili
You can also help by conducting a canned food drive at your place of business, in your neighborhood, class, or with your team, or special event. Contact us and we can help by providing you with a Red Bucket.
We also accept monetary donations which are very important to food pantry operations. Monetary donations give us the flexibility to purchase depleted food staples at substantially less cost. All monetary donations go directly to purchasing food staples for the GCFP.
You can donate online via our secure PayPal account, or take your donations directly to Gunnison Savings and Loan and let them know that it is for the Gunnison Country Food Pantry.
