Usually at this time of the year, we would be gearing up for the “Feinstein Challenge,” an annual event that engages people all across America in combating local hunger.
However, this year the sponsoring foundation will not be running the challenge. They will instead focus on other worthwhile pursuits.
That being said, this will not halt HSP’s endeavors to fight hunger in our communities. We need the support of community members to feed needy seniors and families.
Food drives are especially needed in spring as we prepare to feed 100 needy families in the summer, through our Feed the Kids program.
If you are considering donating food, keep in mind this list of our most-needed food items: breakfast items (such as oatmeal, pancake mix, etc.), boxed potatoes, canned fruits, vegetables and tuna, pasta/rice meals and plain pasta.
As always, we thank you for your continued support of HSP, and if you are interested in hosting a food drive, check out our website.
