GOYA Souper Bowl Sunday Food Drive at St. Gregory the Theologian Greek Orthodox Church in Mansfield MA
February 1, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Our Greek Orthodox Youth Association (GOYA) of Saint Gregory’s is organizing their annual food drive for “Souper Bowl Sunday” on February 1st. Please bring non-perishable food items for the collection which will be donated to the Mansfield Food Pantry.
Here are some ideas of what food is needed at the food bank:
Think about it. People who rely on the food bank eat a lot of canned food, rice, oatmeal, white bread, etc. They love spices. Seasoned salt, cayenne pepper, chili powder, cumin, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, oregano, basil and so on.
People don’t need it, but think about being in their shoes and how nice it would be to be given a chocolate bar or brownie mix along with your essentials.
+Canned meats and jerky.
This isn’t true of all food banks, but some struggle to give users enough protein.
+Crackers and tortillas.
They don’t spoil and everybody likes them.
Sometimes you look at rice, beans, instant potatoes, and cans of vegetable and think, “What do I make with this?” Hearty soup is a complete meal.
+Canned fruit other than pineapple.
Food banks get a lot of pineapple donated. Their clients love it when other kinds of fruit are available.
