We primarily stock non-perishable snack food and canned food. UP does not require information about your income, so we ask that you use this service if you are, by your own judgement, experiencing food insecurity.

Uniting Pride also recognizes that LGBTQ+ families take many forms, and we welcome you to take food not just for yourself, but for the people you live with or care for as well.
