Summer Collection

Summer time is usually considered a carefree time for children and their families, isn’t it?  Picnics, relaxing, vacations, cookouts and fun.

We don’t usually associate summer time with hunger and empty stomachs.  But we should.

At a time when food insecurity in this country is so high, an overwhelming majority of children who receive free or reduced-price meals at school aren’t as lucky once school lets out.

Imagine if your kids came to you saying, “We’re hungry! What’s for lunch?” and you had nothing to offer them.

Hunger never takes a vacation.

Join with us, as we make sure that the families who come to the Food Cupboard each month for supplementary food, receive some extra items to help feed those hungry mouths over the summer.

Here are some ideas of what we are collecting.
  • Granola bars
  • Fruit
  • Cheese sticks
  • Peanut butter
  • Juice boxes
  • Crackers
  • Jelly
  • Soup
  • Cereal
  • Canned spaghetti/ravioli
