Tackle Hunger Food Drive

Help Us Make a Difference for Families in Need

 

 

Dear Parent,

This week our school is kicking off a food drive to help those in need. Each grade will be collecting canned goods and dry goods to donate to our school’s food pantry. Our food drive will help hungry families in our community.

Did you know that in 2008, more than 4.5 million children benefited from food pantry services? Community food drives like ours help make sure those children and their families can get emergency food assistance when they need it.

Please give what you can. One grocery bag of food can provide as many as 11 meals. Every single donation helps, and together we hope our combined donations will make a real difference for those in need. The food pantry is asking for nutritious canned and dry goods.

Here are some suggestions:

Canned vegetables

Dried beans

Fruit canned in its own juices

Applesauce

Canned soups

Beef stew

Canned tuna

Canned chicken

100% fruit juices

Pasta

Rice

Condiments like ketchup and salad dressing

Nuts

Peanut butter

Multigrain and low-sugar cereals

Granola bars

The food drive will begin Wednesday, October 10th and will end on Friday, October 26th. Donations will be collected each morning at the school entrance and your child’s advisory class. If you have any questions, please contact the front office.

 Thank you for your help!
