» Food Collection at St. John’s

Posted on: March 29, 2018

Thanks to a group of creative and committed parishioners, we are once again collecting food pantry donations here at the church. Look for marked bins in the vestibule/narthex and downstairs in the gathering space for non-perishable goods, as well as more specific ways of giving–not only to the food shelf, but in other Community Center outreach with Hallie Q Brown.

Contact Dave Borton (dave@sidewalkmystic.com), Marvin Cadwell (susie46buffy@gmail.com), or Gwen Odney (gnodney@icloud.com) with questions or to volunteer to help move donations down the road to the community center.

Here is a list of the most needed food items for the Hallie Q Brown food shelf:
1. canned beans
2. peanut butter, or other nut butters
3. rolled oats
4. canned fruit in juice, not in light or heavy syrup
5. canned vegetables, with no or low-sodium
6. low-sodium soups
7. canned tuna in water
8. canned chicken
9. rice
10. nuts
11. seeds
12. shelf stable milk
13. pasta
14. low-sodium pasta sauce
15. canned stews
16. unsweetened apple sauce
17. whole grain, low-sugar cold cereals
18. olive or canola oil
19. canned tomatoes
20. dried fruits (no sugar added)
21. honey
