April 2019 Geneseo-Atkinson Food Pantry Newsletter

 

“Scouting for Food” will take place on Saturday, April 6.  The Scouts will distribute flyers prior to the pickup date.  If you set out food and it is not picked up, please bring it to the Food Pantry at 620 W. Main St.  Our hours are Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, 9 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and Friday, 9 a.m. to noon. 

 

The 24th annual Letter Carriers’ “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive will be held Saturday, May 11.  It is the largest one day food drive in the world and is made possible by thousands of letter carriers who volunteer their time to participate, countless volunteers who sort, collect, and distribute much needed food to pantries and food banks across the country.  Locally, postal employees, family members, and friends donate the entire day to collect food from postal patrons both on city and rural routes.  Just leave your donation by your mailbox and it will be picked up when your mail is delivered that day.  These collections help carry us through the summer months, when food donations decrease.

If you are planting a garden this year, please consider planting a row for the Geneseo-Atkinson Food Pantry.  Our clients love having fresh produce to choose from, and some try vegetables they’ve never eaten before if we have them available.  We are happy to accept fresh eggs, dairy and meat as well! 

With warmer weather approaching, the food pantry is in need of light jackets, shorts, capris, toddler size clothing, and towels.

You may visit our website at www.geneseofoodpantry.org or like our Facebook page for updates on current Food Pantry needs, food drives, and other events.

The Food Pantry will be closed on Good Friday, April 19.

Our food needs for April are:  Chicken or beef broth, canned chili, baked beans, tomato paste, and pickles.

Our non-food needs are:  Dish soap, toilet paper, garbage bags, freezer bags, and bleach.
