Events : Take and Eat Food Pantry Shopping
Posted by mdpond on 2016/7/23 17:50:00 (773 reads)

Next time you go grocery shopping, pick up a few things for the Take and Eat Food Pantry.

The food pantry is currently short on funds, so to help anyone interested in donating food here is a list of the most needed items and where I consider the best place to buy them. I hope this helps you all with your decisions in what to buy. This is a list of items currently needed the most for food pantry.

Mike and I have currently stocked piled the following items for 2nd Tuesday handouts:

  • Green Beans
  • Corn
  • Peas
  • Mixed Vegetables
  • spag. Noodles
  • Canned Beans


All bought when they were being offered at a very low price.

Weekly we generally buy:

From Dollar Tree: Oatmeal, canned meats (mainly chili with or without beans, chicken bologna) pancake mix & pancake syrup.  These items are only $1 each which is not a bad price.

Other items (that food pantry is no longer buying) are:

  • breakfast foods
  • canned fruits


Still other items always needed are:

  • soups


So keep you eyes open for good specials atour local stores. However, a great place to buymuch of these items is Aldi's (one off 751 by Southpoint).

Things we can always use that are best found at Aldi's are:

  • Mac & Cheese, 
  • Soups,
  • Canned Chicken, 
  • Chef BRD type products, 
  • Tuna, 
  • Canned Fruits, 
  • Breakfast Foods


I hope this helps you have an idea of what is needed at this time. Thank you everyone foryour consideration of pantry needs and your continued support.
