Bean July for Food Bank 6/21/17

IT’S BEAN JULY
The Downieville Food Bank is looking for local heroes to help fill our pantry. Even though the generosity of financial donations comprise the bulk of the Food Bank’s resources, there are other ways to provide for those who need a helping hand.

Some individuals or organizations prefer to donate money to the Food Bank, others would like to donate food.

You can be a Grocery Good-Guy-Gal! If you are going to your favorite local or out of town food store , it would a brave act of charitable heroism to bring in cans of baked beans to boost the coffers of our Food Bank. Due to the hot weather, there is no drop-off place for your donation. Please call Paul Douville 289-1018 or Frank Lang 289-3466 to arrange for pick-up or drop-off.

Even though bean is the theme, you can choose to bring in other items. There is a list of non-perishable items for the food bags that go out over the holidays and some grocery packages that are given to those who need food throughout the year. Some items to consider are: small boxes or bags of rice, potato flakes, flour, medium sized cans/containers of fruit, tuna, peanut butter, or jelly. But remember, in July the bean reigns supreme.
Each month, a short article will appear with a different item for the shelf. The Downieville Food Bank thanks, in advance, all who participate in this heroic effort.
Thank you for your kindness and generosity!
