Our September Food Collection will be on the weekend of September 5 & 6. And right now our food cupboard is in great need of the following items:
Non-Food Needs: laundry detergent; toilet paper; facial tissue; bar soap; conditioners
Food Needs: low sugar juice boxes; canned fruit (not pineapple); canned meat and fish; honey; sugar; coffee; tea; instant potatoes; pancake syrup; crackers; apple sauce; peanut butter; low sugar jelly/jam; mayo; low fat & reduced salt salad dressing; pasta sauce; rice
Also, remember that we are unable to use the following:
Baby items – Catholic Social Services in Norristown can really use them!
Outdated or opened food items – we cannot give these out and we must then dispose of it & the local bird sanctuary no longer takes them!
Over-sized products or packages – we find they are not taken and remain on our shelves;
Any sugared items where healthier substitutes are available: cereals, snacks, etc.;
Prepared rice – people seem to prefer plain rice as the prepared rice boxes remain on our shelves;
Thank you for all that you do, as the Food Cupboard would not exist without your dedicated support and wonderful generosity! May God bless you and your families for your on-going support to the needy in our Lansdale community.
With gratitude, Sister Barbara
