Help needed for food pantry

During the summer months the North Kent Service Center’s food pantry is depleted by all the extra food requests. With children home during the summer months, families need to provide three meals instead of one. When in school many children receive both breakfast and lunch. Summer is one of their busiest times for emergency food requests.

This summer NKSC is looking to supply extra food for 2,800 families who have school age children. They hope to lessen the burden of those summer luncheons that families now have to provide.

Please if you are able to-collect lunch items for families, to help those who are struggling right here in our own back yards and neighborhoods.

Some of the food items needed are: hotdogs, cereal, mashed potatoes, chips-potato, taco, corn chips and pretzels, macaroni and cheese, peanut butter and jelly, individual wrapped snacks, drink boxes, fresh fruit, canned spaghetti-o’s, spaghetti, soups, cheese slices, canned fruit, cookies, snacks and canned meats.
