The Lawrenceville Co-Op depends on donations of food and personal items from churches, individuals, schools, grocery stores, scout troops, and many other organizations. Food donations may be delivered whenever the Co-Op is open, as well as from 9 to 10:30 AM on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday mornings. There are also a number of local churches that accept donations of food and personal care items and then deliver them directly to the Co-Op.
