Frequently Asked Questions
Am I guaranteed to receive a box if I apply?
We are committed to filling and shipping as many boxes as we can. Boxes will be filled in the order received and as donations are received. We cannot guarantee that every applicant will receive a box.
Can I donate a box to a specific individual?
No, not at this time.
Do you ship to P.O. boxes?
Unfortunately, we are unable to ship pantry direct boxes to P.O. boxes.
Is my donation tax Deductible?
Yes! Mend Hunger is a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization and your donation is tax deductible.
I have other food allergies. Are there options available other than just gluten-free?
We are very attuned to the unique needs of the allergy community, but at this time, Mend Hunger is only able to offer gluten-free options. Please check back for updates, as we are always trying to increase our ability to meet specific allergy needs.
I can't afford to donate a full pantry box. Can I still make a donation?
Do you ship anywhere in the U.S.?
We are able to ship anywhere in the United States, except for Alaska and Hawaii. We can not ship to P.O. Boxes.
