King Student Council Food Drive - 11/1 - 11/19

The King School Student Council Canned Food Drive is back!  We are collecting non-perishable foods from November 1 - November 19.  Our goal is to collect over 4000 food items!  

Everything collected will be donated to Food Gatherers.  Food Gatherers exists to alleviate hunger and eliminate its causes in our community by reducing food waste through the rescue and distribution of perishable and non-perishable food, coordinating with other hunger relief providers, educating the public about hunger, and developing new food resources.

Here are some suggestions of canned and dry goods recommended that are nutritious and easy to donate:

Tuna Fish or other canned fish or meat
Beef Stew, Meat Soups
Hearty Soups
Canned Spaghetti or Pasta
Beans (kidney, pinto, green, yellow, refried or black beans)
Baby Food or Formula
Ensure or other nutritional supplement drinks

Dry Beans
Dry Pasta
Powdered Milk
Pancake or Baking Mixes
Granola Bars
Peanut Butter
Jelly (in plastic jars)

NOTE: Food Gatherers does not accept opened containers and expired products, and asks that you avoid items in glass as they sometimes break in transit. Thank You!

*Please consider donating items with "pop tops" that don't require a can opener.
