Food Bank

Is Samaritan House the main food bank in Brandon? I am moving in two weeks and would like to donate a lot of foodstuffs that I would rather not move(canned goods and such), just not sure where to take them. Also, does anyone know what hours they accept donations at?

Great idea. I have shown up at 9:30 on most weekdays and, once they notice the bags in my hands, welcome me. I brought a donation in around 1:00 PM one day and was mobbed. My advice would be to go in the morning because they hand them out in the afternoons and therefore more people are around.  
 
They will also take dairy that has not expired (yogurts etc.) as they can be used for the Soup Kitchen. Although they are separate entities, I have left Soup Kitchen stuff at the front desk of Samaritan House.  
 
And positive Karma to you for thinking of others rather than just trashing what others could use.

Samaritan House is the main one, but there's several smaller ones too. I think the Salvation Army hands out food hampers, as well as the St. Vincent de Paul Society at St. Augustine's Church. There's probably a couple more.  
 
Good idea, by the way!
