Shortages for 8 May: all of the above, plus (7) canned beans, (8) canned fruit, and (9) mac & cheese.

We also need: Similac Blue and Similac Orange baby formula, and/or domestic or foreign equivalents/substitutes, Pediasure, sizes 4, 5 and 6 diapers, and baby wipes. Also needed are adult unisex pull-ups sizes small, medium and large.

Over the week ending with the 17 April distribution, we received approximately 3.18 tons of non-perishable food, and gave out some 2.93 tons of non-perishable food and somewhat more perishable food to 301 families.
Many thanks to everyone who can help us help those in need!
