Food Storage

Most of us rely on shelf-stable products to contribute to our daily food needs, but for those living with food insecurity and without regular access to affordable and nutritious fresh food the pantry can be a lifeline to their next meal.

Hosting a food drive not only provides Hands For Hunger with a critical supply of food for distribution, but also fosters a stronger sense of connectedness and community. This is a great activity for teams and large groups to get involved.

To stock food storage shelves, high need non-perishable items and canned goods include: soup, canned fruit and vegetables, tuna, grits, oats, pasta, rice, peanut butter, jam, evaporated milk, and water.
