Food Needed by the Arlington Pantry
Social Ministry Outreach for the Arlington Food Pantry
Thank you also to Nancy Becker, one of our newest members and recent addition to the Social Ministry Committee. Nancy is collecting and delivering our donations to the Arlington Food Pantry on a weekly basis (Tuesdays) which is especially important as we enter the holiday season. As you are able, please drop donations in the basket as you enter the narthex, found just below the flower sign up calendar.
From their website, current needs are:
• Cereal/oatmeal, pancake mix, syrup •Cooking oil •Baking goods (sugar, flour, honey, cake mixes) •Coffee/tea •Peanut butter and jelly (plastic jars) •Taco kits •Canned protein (Tuna, salmon, chicken, spam) •Crackers, cookies, granola bars •Spaghetti sauce (plastic jars) and canned tomatoes •Meals in a can (beef stew, chili, ravioli) •Personal care items (toilet paper, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, conditioner) •Household cleaning supplies (laundry detergent, dish soap)
As most clients carry their selections or take the bus, please select plastic containers rather than glass and smaller sizes are better given weight constraints.
Thank you for your ongoing support!
