Ways to Help

Help us help our neighbors


Looking for a way to feed your soul while feeding your neighbors

Your donations of food, money or time are the fuel that runs the Olean Food Pantry.

We have no payroll expenses thanks to our 100% volunteer staff. Your monetary donations help us pay our utilities, office expenses and, most importantly, for food that supplements the food donations we receive from the community.

5 Ways You Can Help

1. Food drives:

If you belong to an organization, be it a church, business or other community organization, ask us about organizing a food drive.

2. Food contribution:

Drop off your contribution during our operating hours at the OFP or at the Olean Public Library anytime they are open.

3. Money:

Your monetary contribution gives us the flexibility to meet special needs and to augment and balance food contributions. With the help from FeedMore of Western New York, we can stretch monetary donations much further and focus food purchases on items we may be running low on.

​To donate by credit card or Paypal payment click on the “Make A Donation” button below. If you would prefer to send a check, please make it out to Olean Food Pantry and drop it off at the food pantry or mail it to Olean Food Pantry, 8 Leo Moss Drive, Olean, NY 14760

​4. Recipes:

Give us your recipes for something special that can be made from the contents of our shelves and we will post it on our website.
