Thanksgiving is often the kick-off to many holiday feasts, but many people struggle to put food on the table on a daily basis including the holidays. To aid San Diegans in need, AdEase is hosting a food drive to help fill the shelves with non-perishable food items at Mama’s Pantry, a program of Mama’s Kitchen.
Established in 2004, the Mama’s Pantry service is designed to meet the needs of clients with HIV/AIDS who can benefit from occasional nutritional support to maintain their health and stretch their food budget. Once a month, clients can visit Mama’s Pantry and select their own non-perishable items such as cereals, pastas, and canned goods from a wide inventory.
Non-perishable food donation recommendations include the following: boxes of cereal, packages of flour, instant oatmeal packets, bottles of cooking oil, jars of peanut butter, jars of jelly, bags of rice, packages of dried beans, spaghetti sauce, boxes of pasta, packets of pasta dinners, canned goods (fruits, soups, vegetables, chili, pasta and beans), macaroni and cheese, tuna fish/salmon, cake mixes and icing, and small boxes of dry milk.
AdEase is making participation easy! Please stop by and say “HELLO” or if you prefer to remain anonymous the red donation barrel is located in the front lobby.
