News from the Food Cupboard

The pandemic rush has not let up: we’re still serving hundreds of families a week this spring. Your generosity has kept some of our shelves overflowing–we have enough pasta sauce to last for months! But we do need some specific items, and we would be so grateful for donations from the list below:

– Coffee (1 pound can)
– Tea (25 tea bags per box)
– Hamburger Helper or taco dinner kit
– Baking mixes (cakes, muffins, biscuits, cupcakes, quick breads)
– Canned chili, Dinty Moore stew, SPAM, or canned ham
– Canned chicken
– Peanut butter and jelly (in equal amounts)
– Diced or crushed canned tomato products
– Pasta (any type)
– Breakfast cereal boxes
– Oatmeal canisters
– Macaroni and cheese (boxes or tubs)
– Ramen noodles or other microwaveable lunches
– Sweet and salty snacks (cookies, snack crackers, nut or trail mix etc.)
– Common condiments (ketchup, mayo, salad dressings, mustard, mild salsa)
– Rice, plain white or brown
– Size 4, 5 or 6 diapers (no other sizes please)
– Laundry detergent (smaller bottles)
– Toilet paper and paper towels
– Hand soap
– Windex or cleaning sprays
– Toilet bowl cleaner
– Gallon or quart Ziplock bags

And here’s the “please don’t” list:
