We are currently concentrating on items that are ready to eat or can be prepped via microwave, as we want to make sure we are offering food items for all types of families, such as those living in cars, motels, hotels, etc.  Examples include 24 oz canned spaghetti sauce, microwaveable bag of rice, microwaveable mac and cheese, full size pop-top Chef Boyardee meals, pop-top soups, canned chicken, squeezable jelly, pop-top canned fruit, 2lb complete pancake mix (just add water), 28 oz or smaller peanut butter, smaller boxes of cereal, canned veggies (ones in bold are highest needs right now).

Donate “extras” to go along with the bags of food.  We will be sending out other items in addition to the food, which include soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, notebooks, crayons and a children’s books, journal, hygiene products, school supplies, socks, age appropriate toy and stuffed animal.
