This time of year, food banks across the country are gearing up to feed thousands upon thousands of hungry Americans on Thanksgiving Day and they desperately need our help. Many people don’t have the time during the busy holiday season to actually volunteer at a food pantry. We may not all be able to cook or serve hot meals at a shelter, and thank you dearly if you are, but we can all help out simply by grocery shopping. Imagine how many families could be blessed with a delicious Thanksgiving dinner if everyone chipped in and bought a few items each time they went food shopping.

Most food banks organize non-perishable food drives during the holidays. They then put together bags or boxes containing all the traditional Thanksgiving trimmings, which are then delivered to or picked up by families in need to take home and prepare.


When you go grocery shopping this week, take along this simple list and pick up as many of the following items as you can. We need everyone to participate. 


We will be meeting on Sunday, November 24th at 10:00am at the St. Paul Lutheran Church in Millville to assemble the baskets.
If you prefer to drop off your items in advance or at our club meeting on the 5th or 19th, please call me at (609) 774-3671. Melanie

 

All canned and packaged goods received from our members, Rotaract and Interact Clubs will be packaged for our families to pick up from the church.  

Location:  St. Paul's Lutheran Church 301 N 3rd St, Millville, NJ 08332

Time to help: 10:00AM
