Hi! A friend sent me an announcement from your organization that indicates you need dishwasher safe plastic containers and plastic bags. Can you also use glass jars with lids (eg jelly jars)? I live 30 minutes away from Ames. What days and times can containers be dropped off?
At this time we are only accepting dishwasher-safe plastic containers (please no glass jars/containers). Please see our donation drop-off hours here: https://foodatfirst.com/food-donations-drop-off-hours/
