Summertime Food Collection for the Network
School's out for summer vacation. For most of us summertime means barbecues, vacation trips, family get togethers, and a generally more relaxed time of the year. For some, however, summertime means that their main meal of the day is no longer available. Many school children in our community get their primary meal and nutrition from the school lunch program. When school closes for the summer, except for some lucky ones who participate in a formal summer feeding program, it means being on their own at home while parent(s) are working. For June and July, in addition to the regular food needs, the Mission Ministry is emphasizing food items appropriate for children to prepare and eat, if they are on their own at home this summer. The Network will need a supply of items which require minimal preparation and perhaps only heating in a microwave oven. Please consider helping to meet this need. Examples of items that will be appropriate are:
- Individual serving containers of ravioli, spaghetti, macaroni and cheese
- Peanut butter or cheese crackers
- Granola and energy bars
- Peanut butter and jelly containers
- Pudding and jello cups (requiring no refrigeration)
- Individual serving size (with tab tops) of canned fruit
- Dried fruit products
- Individual fruit juice containers
- Canned meats such as Vienna sausages
- Individual lunchables that require no refrigeration
Any food items that you are able to provide will be gladly received and appreciated.
