OTHER ITEMS WE COLLECT:
*Grocery store gift cards are also accepted.
Do I have to buy everything on the list?
No. Please fill the Red Bag with any items listed but you do not need to buy everything on the list. We sort all the collected food and fill ziploc bags with a sampling of the items for the students to quickly and easily grab to take home every weekend.
What food items are most needed?
The first few things the kids always ask for are Cup 'O Noodles, Clif Bars and Chocolate Milk. You can also check our Fcebook page before each collection. If our pantries have special requests, we'll post it there.
Is there anything I cannot donate?
If it is sugary (like candy, gum, baking mixes and cookies), home cooked in your kitchen, already opened, expired or not on the Red Bag grocery list, then we cannot accept it. The tag that is attached to your bag has a complete list of items that we are collecting or you can print the latest list below. And we cannot accept any toiletries at this time. To donate toiletries, please contact your local school directly.
