ICM SOCIAL SERVICE FOOD BANK ICM Social Service Food Bank provides a monthly food box for community families who need assistance. The community donates non-perishable food items that are then packaged for monthly pick-up. Our distribution list is growing and ongoing donations of non-perishable items are needed so that we may serve all those that need help. ITEMS NEEDED: rice, oil, sugar, pasta, tuna, cereal, kids snacks, dates, tea, coffee,  jam, peanut butter, cookies, laundry detergent, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, etc. If you would rather make a donation, please make checks to ICM and include “Food Bank” on the memo line. A basic staple box of food items costs $50. DROP OFF LOCATION:  THE ICM MASJID ONLY
