The events of the past two years have affected us all differently and as we begin to see a light at the end of the tunnel, many are still struggling. The Community Food Pantry outside BUMC is there for anyone in need but it’s often EMPTY! We invite all who are able to pick up a few items next time you’re at the grocery store and drop them off in our Community Food Pantry! “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” ~ Winston Churchill
Suggested items: canned meat or other protein items (tuna, salmon, chicken), crackers, peanut butter, canned soups and stews, canned fruits and vegetables, canned beans, pasta, rice, olive oil or Canola oil, powdered milk, spices (salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion salt, oregano, etc.), granola bars, applesauce, nuts, instant mashed potatoes.
Items to Skip: items that have to be refrigerated, items with glass packaging, items that need can openers or other special equipment to open (pop-top cans are the best!), items that require too many extra ingredients, items that are expired, items that are homemade or have already been opened.
