A Spring Food Drive will be held April 1 through April 30, 2019.
The Chattooga County Department of Family and Children Services is in desperate need of food for their food bank. Their food bank is open 24/7 for families who need food at any given moment. We want to, once again, help them with one of the largest food drives ever! Help us fill up the shelves!
The items needed most are:
Canned vegetables, fruit, pasta, soups, stews, chili
Canned meats – tuna, chicken, spam, salmon
Baby food, apple sauce – in squeeze packets
Cereals, oats, rice
Dry beans, dried fruit
Pasta, canned sauce
Macaroni and Cheese
Peanut butter, jelly (in plastic bottles)
Dry or shelf-stable milks
Chicken, beef, or vegetable broths and stock
Instant potatoes, jell-o, puddings
Biscuit mix, pancake mix, syrup
Salt and pepper
• Canned goods with pop-top lids are better than canned goods that require a can opener.
• Avoid foods packaged in glass.
• Do not donate foods that are past the expiration date.
• Consider donating reusable sturdy shopping bags.
Donations of food or money will be greatly appreciated! There will be a donation box set up just inside the door of the courthouse so that you don’t have to go through security.
