This April, we are helping fight hunger with Beyond Hunger in their annual CAN DO Community Challenge, where local schools compete to see who can raise the most points (combination of money and actual food donations). Please support us by joining our team and/or making a donation! For every $1 donated, Beyond Hunger can provide 3 meals!
Items can be donated to the collection box in Irving’s main office throughout the month of April! Below is the list of 10 non-perishable food items worth 5 points each. All food donations will be weighed for a total number of pounds, but only the items below will count towards the competition.
• Peanut Butter
• Canned Chicken Soup
• Cheerios’ Cereal
• Canned Mixed Vegetables (low sodium)
• Diced Tomatoes
• Tomato Paste
• Bagged Rice (White or Brown)
• Refried and Dry Beans (Pinto and Black)
• Canned Pineapples
Beyond Hunger’s off-site pop-up pantry serves newly immigrant families and relies entirely on private donations. Due to the organization’s limits in space and staff/volunteers for sorting, they are asking us to please stick to donations off this list.
