Looking to help restock our Pantry shelves? Please see our Pantry Needs page for a list of suggested perishable and non-perishable food items that we need throughout the year — used in our kitchen to provide meals to those finding refuge and care at MRM. Thank you!


If you’re able to help in providing any of the above items, you may drop them off at our Central Campus—through our Distribution Center (clothing, hygiene items, etc.) or Pantry (fresh food and non-perishables).

  • Distribution Center — Monday-Friday from 10am-6pm; CLOSED SATURDAY, SUNDAY and Holidays
  • Pantry — Monday-Saturday from 8am-4pm; CLOSED SUNDAY

Upon entering the parking lot off of Kilbourn Ave., veer left, drive down the ramp. There you will find both our Pantry door in front of you, and our Distribution Center door on your right as you begin to make a left turn. Staff will assist with your donation and provide a receipt.


Donations may also be sent by mail, whether sent from your home or purchased and shipped from a store (like Target, Amazon, etc.). Please address mailed donations to:
