August 2019 Geneseo-Atkinson Food Pantry Newsletter

The first day of school is August 15, but it is not too late to donate to our school supply drive.  A list of needed school supplies can be found on each school’s website.  You may drop off donations at the Geneseo-Atkinson Food Pantry any time during normal business hours.  All donations stay in the Geneseo School District. 

If you are interested in contributing to the cost of a client’s rent or utilities, you may write that in the memo of your check, and it will be distributed accordingly. 

We have a red donation drop box for food donations located in the vestibule of Fareway for your convenience.  You may also donate at the Food Pantry during our business hours:  Mon., Tue., Thu., from 9-12:00 and 1-4:00, and Fri. 9-12:00.

Is your garden starting to overflow with produce?  Please feel free to drop off any extra to the Food Pantry by 4:00 p.m. any Monday so it will be available for food distribution day on Tuesday.  Our clients always appreciate fresh produce!

As the school year begins and fall approaches, our clients will be in need of lightweight jackets, long sleeve shirts and jeans.  We are especially in need of towels, washcloths, sheet sets, and baby/toddler clothing.  A large number of families and individuals use the items donated by the community to reduce the cost of clothing for their children.

Food needs for the month of August are:  Frosting, muffin mix, chocolate chips, salsa, and coffee. 

Non-food needs are:   Freezer bags, denture cleaner, denture adhesive, bleach, and garbage bags.
