WHEAT Food Drive at the December meeting

The next meeting will be our annual holiday pot luck. Bring your favorite dish to share and consider also bringing something for the WHEAT pantry. Cathy Williams sent along this note to let us know what they need. Money, of course, is always helpful! They purchase perishables every time they have the pantry so any funds raised would go to that.

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
clothes detergent
bar soap
toilet paper
paper towels
small jars of jelly
pouches of dried milk
boxes of dried mashed potatoes
boxes of dressing
hamburger helper
$ 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 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!
