Hunger Doesn’t Get a Vacation: 100 Food Item Challenge
Food donations slow down during the summer months at FoodNet Food Bank and the need for food increasesfor families with children out of school, and the elderly on fixed incomes with higher utility bills. During this time, there is more food going out of the FoodNet warehouse than coming in.
The “Hunger Doesn’t Get a Vacation: 100 Food Item Challenge” will be ongoing throughout the summer months. FoodNet is challenging businesses, bible study groups, vacation bible schools, book clubs or any other groups to take the challenge and donate 100 food items.
Any nonperishable food will be accepted, but the most needed items include: tuna, peanut butter, dry beans, canned meat, chili, soup, tomato sauce, pasta and cornbread mix.
Donations may be dropped off at the FoodNet Food Bank warehouse at 217 Surrey St., Lafayette, LA on Mon., Wed., Thurs., & Fri. from 8 a.m.–1 p.m.
Other drop off bins include the following locations: Adrien’s Supermarket, Champagne’s–Oil Center, Whole Foods Market and Super 1 Foods–Amb. Caffery, Willow St., Carencro, Scott & Youngsville.
