Pet Food Pantry

Pantry 4 Pets

Pet food for dogs and cats is distributed through our Emergency Food Distribution and at all our Mobile Distribution sites. A bag of kibble can mean the difference of a pet living with their family or entering a shelter. Like anyone who has been “adopted” by their furry kids, the clients of Elk Grove Food Bank love their pets.  For some, especially seniors and the homeless, their pet is their only source of companionship. As more individuals struggle with the difficult choices of paying rent, utilities, health care or buying food, some are forced to choose between keeping their pet and putting food on the table. Sometimes a simple bag of kibble is the force that keeps a family together and saves the lives of precious pets.  Helping families and individuals stay together and keep their pets during times of economic hardship is crucial, not only for the family, but also our community.  Like humans, animals deserve the basic necessities in life. The Food Bank is open for donations Monday through Friday* from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm and Saturday from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. *Exception: 4th Wednesday: 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm.
