Garfield Elementary School Food Pantry

“For I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat…”
Matthew 25:35

We continue to collect food supplies to ensure that our at-risk families have enough to eat. You can deliver pantry items during business hours and on Sunday.

Always needed:
• Pasta, all kinds, Mac & Cheese, stovetop stuffing
• Beans
• Other canned items, such as tomatoes, vegetables, Fruit, Tuna, Chicken
• Rice
• Fruit cups, Peanut Butter, Jelly
• Cereal
• Powdered Milk
• Small plastic bottles of cooking oil

We are currently distributing food twice a month, each family receiving a combination of protein, fruit and vegetables and pastas.  Each supplementary bag of food given out costs approximately 20 dollars. So please don’t feel like you need to bring a table full of food (though we love getting all that food!), just bring a bag with a selection from the items above.

Things to avoid if at possible:
Glass jars as the bags get heavy
Commercial / family / super-sized containers of food
