Caring Choices operates a donation-based food pantry. Located in our Chico and Redding offices we are always accepting donations of canned and nonperishable goods. Please inspect items to ensure they are not expired before dropping off. We are now able to accept produce and frozen items. Please call our office at 530.899.3873 for more info on produce donations. To make a donation you can drop off food at our office during business hours or email info@caring-choices.org and we will arrange porch pick up!


The pantry is open to all community members, you do not have to be a Caring Choices client to access the food pantry. No ID or documents are required. Anyone is able to receive food. Due to COVID-19 please call our office before you stop by and we will have a bag of food waiting for you when you arrive. We also have hygiene items, clothing, and pet food available as well.
