This week, November 5th through November 9th, first and second grade classrooms at ESAA will be collecting canned goods and dry goods to donate to the local food pantry. Students in Mrs. Vujea’s and Mrs. Heinen’s class have decided to make it their mission to help hungry families in our community.
Did you know that more than half of the people who benefit from food pantry services are children? Community food drives like ours help make sure those children and their families can get emergency food assistance when they need it.
Please give what you can. One grocery bag of food can provide as many as 11 meals. Every single donation helps, and together we hope our combined donations will make a real difference for those in need. The food pantry is asking for nutritious canned and dry goods.
Here are some suggestions:
- Canned vegetables
- Dried beans
- Fruit canned in its own juices
- Canned soups
- Beef stew
- Canned tuna
- Canned chicken
- 100% fruit juices
- Condiments like ketchup and salad dressing
- Peanut butter
- Multigrain and low-sugar cereals
- Granola bars
Thank you for your help!
