Pantry Donations

Be Concerned Food Pantry

If you would like to help by organizing a donation drive, please review the information below to understand some of the ways to organize around specific needs. This is a great way to involve families and younger children in activities that help them learn about giving back. Our AmazonSmile Wish Lists can give you some ideas and make it easy to shop!

We have two pantry locations. Both accept donations from 9:00 AM– 3:00 PM Monday – Friday. Donations can be dropped off or sent to the following addresses:

Covington: 1100 Pike Street, Covington, KY 41011   859-291-6789 – shopping from 12:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Erlanger: 525 Graves Street, Erlanger, KY 41018    859-727-0300 – shopping from 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM

Pantry Drive – You can work with your school, church, friends, and family to organize a pantry food drive. Some of the items that tend go quickly include:

  • Fresh fruits and vegetables (We prefer these for Monday donations due to the short shelf life.)
  • Household cleaning items (laundry detergent, cleaning sprays, paper towels, dish soap, dishwasher soap)
  • Bread
  • Cereal
  • Crackers
  • Canned items
  • Can openers
  • Pasta
  • Flour
  • Cooking Oils
  • Dog and cat food (small bags or cans)

Baby Shower Drive – We have seen an increase in the need for baby-related items. This would be a fun way to organize a baby shower drive to these frequently requested items.

  • Diapers – all sizes (Babies use 10-12 diapers a day!)
  • Baby wipes
  • Baby wash and shampoo
  • Formula
  • Baby clothing detergent
  • Baby food

Personal Hygiene Drive – Accessing the basics, like shampoo and soap, are beyond reach for some of our pantry customers.

  • Shampoo
  • Body wash
  • Shaving cream and razors
  • Adult diapers
  • Feminine items
  • Toilet paper
