Foothills Food Bank offering holiday meals
Staff Report~ 11/19/2014
CAVE CREEK – Every year, the Foothills Food Bank helps make the holidays brighter for families in need.
For Thanksgiving, the food bank will be giving clients turkeys and items for side dishes or gift cards to purchase a meal. These items can include stuffing mix, boxed potatoes, canned vegetables, cranberry sauce, and dessert items.
The Foothills Food Bank welcomes the community’s help in sharing the bounties of Thanksgiving. Monetary donations to help cover the costs of the meals would be greatly appreciated. Non-perishable food items are always welcome donations, as well. The food bank’s November wish list includes pasta sauce, peanut butter, jelly, tuna, canned soup, canned vegetables, canned pasta, sugar, coffee, powdered milk, and condiments. Toiletries, soap, shampoo, and diapers are also needed.
Another way the Foothills Food Bank is brightening the holidays this year is through Adopt A Family. Donors receive a wish list for a local family who can’t afford gifts this year. Donors spend what they are able to help brighten the holidays for families in the community. Gifts need to be purchased, wrapped, and delivered to the Holland Community Center Dec. 8-12.
