We gather inspiration from the stories that others, that are drawn to volunteer are willing to share. When you are able to share your gifts with others in the community, the results are so great for all concerned. Helping others, without expecting anything in return, changes everything.

The North County Food Pantry is co-directed by volunteers Sandy and Joe Harvey.

The number of volunteers needed to run the pantry is approximately 37 volunteers year round plus an additional 8 in the summer with the community garden work (45 volunteers total). There are many many jobs performed behind the scenes to keep this charity open. If you are interested in assisting us, there is a volunteer application form available for download at the top of this page. We would love to meet you and discuss any kind of volunteering you may want to do. Or, you can stop by and pick up an application when we are open on either Monday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings (freight)


Here at NCFP, we are always grateful for any donations of food, whether from your garden excess or the extra in your pantry.

The majority of our food supplies are received from Second Harvest and Northwest Harvest. We receive freight from Second Harvest on every Thursday, and from Northwest Harvest on the second Wednesday of each month. On the first Monday of the month we receive a food drive from St. Joseph's Parish in Colbert, WA. We also receive bakery donations regularly from Caritas in Spokane WA.

Many organizations such as schools, churches, Scouts and business' regularly contribute to the Pantry through food drives and other collections. Whatever we collect ourselves, we strive along with our partners at the New Hope Resource Center (501C3) in Chatteroy to carefully distribute respectfully to the clients in our area.  All donations to us are tax deductible, within IRS tax guidelines.

We appreciate all donations, and would like to also mention that monetary donations do allow us to purchase what else is needed.

We use our FaceBook Page to request what other current necessities are needed like toiletries, cleaning supplies, first aid supplies, and household items. Feel free to contact us if you have any helpful ideas.
