Unselfish and noble actions are the most radiant pages in the biography of souls. ~David Thomas, as quoted in Tryon Edwards, A Dictionary of Thoughts, 1891
There have been several organizations collecting items for the Nemaha County Food Pantry the past couple of months. When we made our last delivery, we asked what is needed most now. Here is the list we were given: hamburger and tuna helper, apple juice, kleenex, men’s razors and shaving cream, toothpaste and toothbrushes, underarm deodorant. The products we highlighted in December can still be on your list, laundry products, personal hygiene items, household paper goods such as Kleenex and toilet paper. The generosity of our community is amazing and much appreciated.
Here is a full list of items each family receives, each month: 1 breakfast item, 4 cans of vegetables, 1 can beans, 1 package of rice, 1 pasta and sauce, 1 jar of peanut butter, 1 box of crackers, 2 cans of fruit, 1 can of tuna or chicken, 2 cans of soup, 1 dessert, and a pound of meat.
These items are always needed at the Food Pantry. We focus on particular items each month as a way to bring attention to the need: Paper products [toilet paper, paper towels, Kleenex], personal products, boxed cereal, oatmeal, pancake mix, syrup, canned vegetables, rice, pasta and sauce, peanut butter, boxed crackers, canned fruit, canned tuna, canned chicken, boxed tuna and chicken helper, canned soups, jello and pudding mixes, cookies, cake mixes and frosting, pie mix, etc. They also accept laundry detergent, dish soap, shampoo, bath soap.
