Items to Donate

Photo of box with donated produce

(List updated:  July 27, 2020) At Bhante G's direction Bhavana continues to be CLOSED for all visitors and for in-person Dana meals for the remainder of 2020 or further notice.

However, even at these difficult times, we have continued to receive steady support through donations of non-perishable food items by mail, gift cards to a local grocery store, and a donation of a membership to a local, organic farm for weekly produce. Because our supporters wish to donate useful things, we provide this list of some staple foods and other needed supplies, which the community here at Bhavana could use at this time. We deeply and most sincerely appreciate each and every donation we receive, and we remain grateful to ALL of our supporters!

If interested in offering a book for Bhavana's library, please visit the Books to Donate page.
