Bread For Life Pantry inventory low, special food drive at Kroger

Posted on Monday, August 5, 2013 at 10:16 am

There will be a special ‘Food Drive’ at the Troy Kroger Store on Friday, Aug. 9 from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m. and on Saturday, Aug. 10 from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. Kroger is located at 1 Troy Square Shopping Center.

Summer months are especially busy for the pantry – children are home from school and families especially need help during the summer months. Pantry shelves are low… so the pantry is asking for food donations to stock the shelves. All items are needed – but especially soup, brown beans, green beans, peanut butter, boxed dinners, canned and dry pasta, canned meats and mac n’ cheese.

Please bring donated items to Kroger any time between 3 and 7 p.m. on Aug. 9, or 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Aug. 10. Volunteers will be there to accept donations.

The pantry can purchase food through the Greater St. Louis Food Bank at very reasonable cost. Cash donations will also be accepted if donors would prefer the pantry do the bulk shopping.

Everyone’s support is truly appreciated for this very worthwhile cause.
