Food Share tips in city of Moorpark

An item for clarification in the Nov. 27 article about groups supporting the Moorpark Food Pantry: While FOOD Share prefers to receive cash donations and it does deliver to our pantry, funds it receives from Moorpark will not purchase more food specifically for Moorpark.

In order for the Moorpark Food Pantry to receive additional food from FOOD Share, the financial donations must be given to the food pantry itself and specified to be used for “FOOD Share purchases.” The pantry will then purchase the food from FOOD Share.

Any donations to the Catholic Charities Moorpark Food Pantry are tax-deductible, and some companies match the financial donations that employees make.
