Food Pantry Donations

All the food and personal care items in the red barrel were taken to Bidwell Riverside Food Pantry Monday morning. It more than filled a grocery cart. The volunteers were happy to see me. There was a line of folks at the pantry waiting to get in to pick up food.

I am asking our church family to please continue to be generous in giving food and personal care items to the food pantry. Thanksgiving and Christmas are coming up fast. Bidwell Riverside is the largest food pantry in the state and serves the most families in the greater Des Moines area. They are thankful for our help. Money can also be given to help with the purchase of turkeys and hams.

Here is a list of the most needed items:

  • Boxed Cereal
  • Peanut Butter
  • Canned Chicken and Tuna
  • Canned Soup
  • Canned Chili
  • Pasta
  • Pasta Sauce
  • Canned and Dried Beans
  • Rice
  • Canned Fruits and Vegetable
  • Any non-perishable miscellaneous foods

Love to all,

Carolyn Spencer
