Many of us take holiday meals for granted, but families who are struggling to make ends meet often have to pass up special occasions. Our area food banks are currently accepting monetary donations and donations of nonperishable items, including boxed, canned and bagged food.
Most needed items include: canned meats (tuna, salmon, ravioli and chili), canned corn, macaroni & cheese dinners, tomato sauce, canned fruits in light syrup, low sodium soups, pasta and pasta sauces, low sodium canned vegetables, canned diced tomatoes, bags of brown rice and pinto beans, peanut butter and jelly.
