The Berea Community Outreach Food Pantry is in need of your help collecting food items to help our residents. We have the ability to keep perishable and nonperishable items. The pantry has a commercial refrigerator and freezer to keep these items fresh. Some examples of items we always need are:
- Meat, vegetables, fruit, cheese, milk and eggs
- Toilet paper, paper towels, laundry detergent, dish soap and all toiletries
We can always use canned goods such as chicken, tuna, soup, fruit, etc. Boxed meals, kids snacks, peanut butter and jelly are also popular items.

Little Food Pantries: Two small self serve food boxes located behind City Hall (11 Berea Commons) and at People's Community Church (631 N. Rocky River Drive) are designed for people to "Take What They Need and Give What They Can". Ready-to-eat meals are ideal, but all donations are appreciated.
Once your donations are received, the Berea Community Outreach will send you a tax deductible form.
