Food Banks Need Your Help Even After The Holidays

With the federal government on what is known in our house as the "big close-down" the American people that rely on government help such as SNAP will find it hard to get by. Many of them all ready depend on some help from the local food banks will be depending on those areas that help even more. So how can we help??

Food banks depend on the generosity of individuals like you and me. Manufacturers, wholesalers, growers, packers, distributors, supermarkets, and others often donate excess as well.

Every donation of unexpired food is greatly appreciated. There are some items that food pantries and banks need more than others. There are often items that are needed that may never get donated.

Most needed items include:

  • Canned Fruits, Vegetables, Meat, and Soup 
  • Whole Grain Pasta, Brown Rice, Dried Beans, and Cereal
  • Peanut Butter
  • For Infants: Pedialyte, Infant Cereal, Diapers, and Wipes
  • For Kids: Fruit Cups, Juice Boxes, Granola Bars, Crackers, Popcorn and Sugar-Free Pudding Cups
  • Non-Food Essentials: Hygiene Items, Household Items, and Paper Products
Thank you for reading and Thank you for giving if you can. I am sure that there are many others that will thank you as well.
