It is difficult to keep up with the current level of need. If you are able to help keep the pantry stocked, please consider dropping off a few items.

Please DO NOT leave items that are not either food or hygiene related. The Macedon Center Food Shed does not need: artificial flowers, puzzle books, craft items, old clothing, etc. In general, if it is not food or something a person can use to keep themselves or their home clean and healthy it should be brought to Good Will for donation. Please keep this in mind since donations that are not food or hygiene related create a lot of extra work for the people who volunteer to care for the shed.

Thanks to all who have donated to the shed and continue to support the community!
