We continue to assist with several bags of fresh and staple groceries to approximately 80 families residing in Western Hanover County.
Following is a list of items that will assist us in assisting our community's needy and food insecure:
any type of canned vegetable or fruit
6 ounce cans of tuna
spaghetti sauce to feed a family of 4
boxes of mac 'n cheese
8 ounce boxes of spaghetti noodles
cereal or oatmeal
pancake mix and syrup
dish detergent to hand-wash dishes
small jars of jelly
pouches of dried milk
boxes of dried mashed potatoes
boxes of dressing
$ to offset the cost of fresh foods purchased the day of the pantry (Make checks payable to WHEAT and include your address. Yo will receive a tax receipt.)
Also, if you are doing your holiday shopping at Amazon please consider using smile.amazon.com. It's the same Amazon but you also pick a charity (WHEAT is one and so is the Virginia Quilt Museum). A percentage of the sale goes to the charity you choose. It's a small percentage but it all adds up!
