Cantina Items

Our clients often arrive at Palomar fresh from traumatic events.  They may not have eaten for hours, sometimes days. It is so important to have basic needs met while making important decisions and taking protective action.

We are asking you to sign up to provide a week’s worth of these items.  Your volunteer(s) will deliver the items to Palomar on Monday morning between 8am and 9am.  Your volunteer will organize the donated items in the refrigerator and cabinets with assistance from our staff.

  • Sandwich making provisions: bread, deli meats, cheese, mustard, mayo
  • Fruit (bananas, apples, oranges, Cuties/Halos)
  • String cheese
  • Yogurt
  • Veggies
  • Hummus
  • Individually wrapped healthy snacks
  • Bottled water
  • Juices
  • Milk
  • Tea
