We estimate we need the following for the next two weeks’ distributions: (1) canned beans, (2) pasta sauce, (3) canned fruit, (4) dry, unsweetened cereal, (5) pasta, (6) “meals in a can” (stew, canned pasta, chili, etc.), and (7) dry rice/beans.
In addition, we expect to need: diapers sizes newborn, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6, baby wipes, and Pediasure, as well as Ensure and adult unisex Pullups size large.
Paper grocery bags (Trader Joe or Wegmans size or similar) are in short supply. Can you help? Plastic newspaper bags and plastic grocery bags are always needed. Plastic 12-egg cartons are very much needed. Other 12 or 6 unit containers are useful as back-ups. (18 and 24-egg containers are too large for our distribution).
Thanks to our donors, we believe that we have have enough canned vegetables, mac & cheese, and canned meat/fish for the next two weeks.
We will provide distribution totals next week. As always, special thanks go to all those helping us to keep St. Martin’s Pantry in operation!
