Capital Area Food Bank food drive information:
In high demand: Canned meat and vegetables (pop-tops preferred), paste and pasta sauce, pinto beans, rice, healthy cereal, peanut butter, baby food and formula.

We also have a revised request related to the holiday party food drive. Although Capital Area Food Bank includes canned meats and vegetables as foods in high demand, information on the effects of bisphenol-a (BPA) in epoxy-based can linings has led us to highly recommend that you donate safer alternatives.

To the best of our knowledge, there are very few canned foods with BPA-free linings. For information on specific brands and their use of BPA, we suggest calling companies directly.

Dry foods that are commercially packaged in boxes or bags are least likely to contain BPA. Capital area food bank suggests that healthy cereals, dry beans, rice, and pasta are all high-demand items.

For additional information on the health effects of BPA and it's prevalence in canned foods please visit the following websites:
