Annual Canned Food Drive

CONGRATULATIONS!

to those who contributed or collected the canned foods this during our 2013 drive.  This year we filled a car with food and non-perishables for the needy in our community.  Everything we collected is donated to the Mandarin Food Bank.

This past year the food bank served over 5,629 needy families in our community.  

Our collection replenished their supplies and will be distributed to the community with their upcoming Christmas outreach.


 

Mark on your calendars November 2014 for the Next Food Drive to support the Mandarin Food Bank and the needy in our local community.

Last year Florida was one of 9 states who had an above average hunger rate.  48.8 million American households didn’t have enough food for every meal.

The need does not go away once the holidays are over.  The Mandarin Food Bank accepts donations for non-perishable foods and gently used or new clothing all year.

They are specifically in need of the following:

Spaghetti & Sauce

Tuna and any canned meat

Peanut Butter & Jelly

Hot and Cold cereal

Toilet Tissue, toothpaste,

laundry detergent, & shampoo

Drinks of all kinds, especially coffee, tea, and juice

Diapers of all sizes: children and adult

Jello and any other canned good or dry good item.
