We have partnered with the organization Hand2Hand as another way to serve the students of West Kelloggsville (in addition to having our Kids Hope mentors there). Through Hand2Hand, we will build a pantry of shelf-stable food and then pack it into bags to go home with kids each weekend to help bridge the gap of weekend hunger. These bags consist of breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner items (often including a simple recipe card). We are planning to start sending these packs home with students after Christmas break, to start off the new semester.

For now we are focused on filling up our pantry and this is where the food drive comes in! We are in need of the following items:

  • Single applesauce (pouches or cups)
  • Single serving cereal boxes or cups
  • Single serving boxes of shelf-stable milk
  • Single serving fruit cups
  • Pudding cups
  • Granola bars / Breakfast Bars
  • Single serving Oatmeal packets or cups
  • Fruit snacksIndividual size bags of crackers or cookies (Teddy grahams, Cheezits, Goldfish, Nilla Wafers, Ritz Bits, etc.)
  • Small boxes of raisins
  • Microwave popcorn
  • Easy Mac cups
  • Mac n Cheese boxes (the regular size-7.25 oz, not family size)
  • Spaghettios or Ravioli cans
  • Canned soup
  • Canned Chicken
  • Spaghetti
  • Spaghetti sauce
  • Canned vegetables (corn, beans, carrots, etc.)

* For the canned items, regular size is best

You can return these items to the narthex anytime between now and Thanksgiving morning.
