Newport Food Pantry Manager Kathy Myers says “We distributed 1,000 pounds of food just yesterday so our selection of canned legumes has completely disappeared. The only dried beans we currently have are pinto beans so we really need some dried black beans, red beans, white beans, and kidney beans. We also desperately need split peas and lentils. We have some oatmeal and corn flakes but need cereals like shredded wheat and raisin bran. Some people have very limited cooking facilities and greatly benefit by having available items that can be prepared in one pot on a hot plate. Canned pork and beans and chili are two popular items but we also love being surprised by variety.
Food can be dropped off here at the pantry Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM, and Saturday morning until noon. Come in for a visit and a tour if you like. Of course, our food collection containers are in many convenient locations around town. For a complete list click here and click on the donate link.
Thank you everyone for your continued support and generosity.”
