St. Vincent's Seeks Food Donations for 2,000 Local Families

Posted: Updated:

From Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada:

The St. Vincent's Food Pantry is asking the community for non-perishable food donations for the annual Feeding Families Food Drive.  Every year, we give away turkeys and fixings for a holiday meal to around 1,000 families in need. Due to an increase in Food Pantry clients and a greater need for food assistance, this year we'll be helping 2,000 families by providing them with a special holiday meal to cook at home.

We are asking the community to help us by donating the following:
-Frozen hams and turkeys
-Boxed stuffing mix
-Instant mashed potatoes
-Canned cranberry sauce
-Bread and rolls
-Canned vegetables and fruit
-Custard, pudding and desserts

Food items can be dropped off at our Food Pantry at 500 East Fourth Street in  downtown Reno Mondays through Fridays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Businesses and individuals willing to host a food drive can call (775)322-7073 ext. 235 to schedule a barrel delivery and pick up. The food boxes will be distributed to hungry families by our St. Vincent's Food Pantry on Wednesday, December 11th, 2013 from 9:00-3:00 p.m. The deadline to donate is December 7th, 2013.
