Each month at our regular Guild meetings, we collect non-perishable food for the Auburn Interfaith Food Closet. The Auburn Interfaith Food Closet provides food for those in need, once every 30 days. "Emergency food" consists of at least nine meals per person in the family. Consequently, they are always in need of donations, and this is another way we support our community.
Each month we’ll have a suggested donation and a request to bring in one can, box, mix, etc.:
July - canned meats like tuna or chicken
August - lunch box treats like juice boxes, krispy treats, cracker snacks
September - pasta and/or sauce
October - canned vegetables
November - canned fruits
December - diapers size 3 or 4
January - meal in a can like chili, ravioli, stews, spaghetti
February - peanut butter
March - soup, but not Top Ramen or Broth
April - packaged mac & cheese or “meal helpers”
May - dried beans, rice, split peas, etc
June - Bisquick or other pancake mix, syrup, cake mixes
In addition, they can always use:
Egg cartons (for 12 eggs, not 18)
Paper grocery bags with handles
If the suggested donation doesn't work for you, ALL donations are gratefully accepted. All items are taken to the Food Closet on Tuesday, after the Monday night meetings, with a note from FQG.
