December Meeting Info - Our Annual Holiday Pot Luck!

Our December meeting is our annual pot luck and collection for WHEAT. The meeting is December 9 and we will start at 6:30. Bring your favorite dish to share along with show-and-tell.

We will also collect food for WHEAT again this year. Here's a list from Cathy Williams of items that WHEAT needs. She also said that they will take large sacks of rice or beans as they repackage those into smaller bags.

The following items are needed for WHEAT's twice monthly Open Pantry. We fill bags with very basic items to promote wellness and help families be less food insecure in Western Hanover County. We currently are assisting 140 households and welcome your partnership:

1 lb. boxes of noodles
spaghetti sauce
cans of tuna or chicken
cans of vegetables
bags of  dried beans
cans of fruit, some low sugar or sugar free
boxes of breakfast cereal, oats or pancake mix (please include syrup, some sugar free)
boxes or envelopes of stuffing or instant potatoes
envelopes of dried milk
boxes of mac 'n cheese
small jars of jam or jelly
gift cards to any area grocery store
quart storage zip bags (Carolyn, please give me your snack bags)
prayer for us and your neighbors

Blessings To You, 
Cathy Williams, WHEAT's Open Pantry Coordinator
WHEAT    P.O. Box 171, Beaverdam, VA 23015
