A heart warming update from Newport Food Pantry

From Katherine Myers
Newport Food Pantry

One of the highlights of the week was watching a young girl, just about to celebrate her third birthday, jump up and down with a huge smile on her face because she was able to choose a pretty cake to take home, thanks to the donations we receive from the local grocery stores. Over 700 children are members of the families who are registered to use the pantry and they don’t take simple pleasures like birthday cakes for granted.

We are just completing our busy time of the month so, once again, we need more peanut butter and jam, healthy cereals, canned meats, canned fruit, and powdered milk,. Also in short supply are the shelf stable ready to eat items such as chili, pork and beans, and hearty soups. Many of the families are living in cramped quarters where cooking and storage facilities are limited so boxed items such as macaroni and cheese and scalloped potatoes are also popular. Variety is key to a “client choice” pantry so we’d love to see a larger selection of canned vegetables added to the corn, green beans, and carrots we currently have. Surprise us. Last week we had two cans of donated broiled eel leave the pantry so we never know what will prove popular.

Food donations can be dropped off here at the pantry Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM until 2:00 PM, and Saturday morning until noon. If the pantry location and hours aren’t convenient for you, many wonderful organizations and businesses keep our food collection containers on site. For a complete list, please go to NewportFoodPantry.org and click on the donate link. Or just click here.

We are forever grateful to the Newport community for their continued generosity.

Sincerely,
Katherine Myers
