Drop-off donations can be made between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. every Wednesday and Friday, as well as the first and third Saturday of each month. Our address is:
The Santee Food Bank

Santee, CA 92071
(We are located on the Carlton Hills Evangelical Lutheran Church property.)
What We're Looking For
We accept all food items, including fresh fruit and vegetables. You can also donate baby food and baby care items, as well as unopened personal hygiene products such as shampoo, soap, toothpaste, toilet tissue, paper towels and the like. We also welcome food and care items for senior residents.
We are always in need of basic food staples, such as peanut butter, which helps provide protein for families with children; cereal for children and our elderly population; canned spaghetti sauce and dry pasta; canned meat, such as tuna, beef and chicken. We always welcome surplus and imperfect food that is safe and edible.
As a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, the Santee Food Bank depends on the generosity of our community for donations of money, food, baby care items, personal hygiene products and volunteer time. We thank the residents, local businesses and food industry donors who are helping fight hunger in Santee.
