Things to consider when giving to the food bank


With food drives coming up for the holidays, I thought it might be a good time to let all of our generous citizens know what we are in need of.

We use a lot of canned green beans, canned fruit, and mac and cheese. Anything you would like for your dinner, your neighbors would probably also like; please use your good judgment. Please send us regular-sized foods, not oversized; it serves more people. Please watch the best-by date on things you take out of your cupboard; we threw away some things last year that were five years old and older, and we can’t serve them.

We have had a great year and a lot of that had to do with the Hunger Bags from Safeway. We have so many generous people in this community. And it keeps us going. Thank you again for your help to feed and provide for the least of us. The gentlemen who has donated money on a monthly basis for meat the last year has been a real blessing. We have been able to give meat every week, chicken, hotdogs, pork, and we will have ham for Thanksgiving.

Thank you all so much.
