Everyone loves pasta! And we invite you to donate all sorts: regular, whole wheat, veggie-loaded, high-protein… and rigatoni, cork screw, butterfly, ziti, … you get the idea! Variety is the spice of life, and we love to be able to offer our clients choices.
As you know, we have a Full Choice model at the Food Pantry, where our clients can choose items that best fulfill the needs of their household. We buy food in bulk from Feeding Westchester, but not all the items we’d like to offer are always available. And pasta is popular, so in March we ask for your contributions.
When the Food Pantry suggests an “item of the month,” it’s not just some suggestion from a rotating calendar, it’s actually something that has not been available from the Food Bank.
Noting the item of the month and bringing in some supplies can help the pantry offer as wide a variety of foods as possible. Just place the items in the basket in the Gathering Space.
