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:

+Spices.
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.

+Chocolate.
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.

+Soup packets.
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.
