Drive-Thru Food Collection @ Cranford United Methodist Church
Join us for the next Drive-Thru Food Collection event from 10 am to 2 pm in the church’s parking lot, as the pandemic rages on and our neighbors are still struggling to keep food on the table.
Place your bags of non-perishable food in your trunk, drive up, pop your trunk and volunteers will remove them, no contact needed! Your food donations will be delivered to Cranford Family Care (https://www.facebook.com/CranfordFamilyCares), St. Joseph’s Social Services, and other local organizations serving families in need. Last month we delivered 8 vans loaded full to the brim!
Here are examples of especially needed items: Cooking oil, tuna, boxed milk, spices, salt, pepper, tea and coffee, sugar, flour, crackers, soup, cereal, canned vegetables, rice in 1-2 lb. packages (not large bags), cake mix and frosting, dish detergent, soap and paper goods.
There is also a special need for bags of fresh produce, for example, apples, onions, potatoes, sweet potatoes, ginger, garlic, celery, jicama, beets, and other hardy fresh produce.
Can’t make that date? There are bins placed outside the entrance to the church off of the parking lot where donations can be dropped at any time.
Mark your calendars for the next two food drives: April 10 and May 8. Same time, the same location.
