GOOD SAMARITANS SUMMER FOOD NEEDS

This is one of the projects we selected to do this year. Rita Ryser so graciously compiled this list for us. 

Subject: LCN food drive for kids/ Good Samaritans

At the beginning of the year, we decided that we would have a food drive to keep the kids fed during their summer vacation. It's time! Bring donations to the LCN June 2nd meeting.

Suggestions from Jim Dillon, who is our buyer:

Corn bread mix (8oz)

Tomato sauce (8oz)

Saltine crackers

Cereal

Sugar

Flour

Items for diabetics

Baby formula

Want to purchase food esp. for kids? Here are some more suggestions:

Peanut butter

Jelly

Ramen noodles

Macaroni and cheese

Soups

Spaghetti-0's and related canned products

Tuna

Mayonnaise

Cereal

If you have garden produce that you can't use, that is always welcome, too! If freshness is an issue, deliveries can be made on Monday or Thursday mornings because we give out food on Monday and Thursday afternoons. Otherwise, there is usually someone there mornings--except Friday and Sunday--to accept your gift. 

Bring your non-perishable items or monetary donations to the June 2nd LCN meeting. Checks can be made out to "Good Samaritans" which would serve as your tax-deductible receipt. Otherwise, I will try to remember to bring receipts to the meeting.

Thank you!

Rita
