winter break food boxes

Dear Edgewood Community,
 
Winter Break is coming soon and we are hoping  to fill winter break food boxes for approximately 30 Edgewood families.  This food drive is different than our Thanksgiving food boxes in that we are hoping to cover basic food needs over winter break as opposed to just one meal.  Each box will have various well-rounded items and staples.  We are asking families to donate non-perishable items (see list below).  We will be purchasing dairy and proteins with cash donations received.

 

If you are able to help, we’ll be collecting donations through Wednesday, December 19th.  Dry goods can be brought into the office.  Here are some ideas of non-perishable food items we are looking for:
 
– pastas
– sauces
– beans
– rice
– soups
– rice or pasta meals (mac and cheese)
– cereal
– peanut butter and Jelly
– canned fruit or vegetables
– oatmeal
– crackers
– granola bars
– fruit snacks
 
In addition to our food drive, our Edgewood ambassadors have organized a toiletries drive.  Toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, shampoo etc can all be brought into the office as well and we will add them to our Winter Break Food Boxes.
 
Thank you for your generosity!
