Donating to the Food Bank of Northern Indiana is as easy as setting out some food by the mailbox this weekend.

Suggested donations include non-perishable food, toiletries, cleaning supplies and pet food. Glass containers should not be included in the donations.

The donations should be outside in a sturdy bag by 8 a.m. St. Joseph County residents who receive their mail on Saturday but their donation wasn’t picked up can call 574-232-9986 ext. 149.

Donations can also be dropped off at the following locations:

  • Any post office retail counters in South Bend, Mishawaka or Granger
  • Food Bank of Northern Indiana, 702 Chapin St., South Bend
  • In orange collection barrels at Kroger and Martin’s Super Market stores in South Bend, Mishawaka and Granger
