Donate Fresh Food for the Residents of Posada Esperanza

Posada Esperanza, the family shelter of Casa Marianella, needs your help to bring more fresh, wholesome food to their residents.

They've created a food calendar where volunteers can sign up to bring some fresh (not packaged or canned) food items to Posada, 5104 Rainbow Ridge Circle.

Here's how it will work:

  • Follow the link here to sign up for a slot on Wednesday or Friday--only one person per slot. If you need to adjust the delivery time, make note of it when you sign up and send them an email.
  • To ensure that no food is wasted and that we have enough fridge space, please limit your donations to no more than four grocery bags.
  • Signing up once does not commit you to signing up every week, but you can be a regular if you'd like. It's as much or as little as you want!

They are looking for donations of the following items:

  • Tomatoes
  • Tomatillos
  • Onions
  • Iceberg lettuce
  • Lemon
  • Lime
  • Fresh garlic
  • Cucumbers
  • Calabaza squash
  • Avocado
  • Potatoes (any kind)
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Half-gallons of milk (no more than 2 per person)
  • Eggs
  • Strawberries, grapes, bananas, cuties
  • Guava, papaya, mango, pineapple
  • Melon
  • Plantains
  • Cilantro
  • Peppers
  • Chicken-white and dark meat
  • Fish, such as frozen tilapia
  • Masa flour and wheat flour
  • Cooking oil and olive oil

As they already have the following items in abundance, they cannot accept:

  • Canned food
  • Bread, cookies, chips, sweets, tortillas
  • Prepackaged or prepared meals or salads

Have questions? Let them know, at or go ahead and sign up now!

Thank you so much!
