It is almost time for the annual Food for the Hungry campaign which is a food and money drive that benefits Knox County Interchurch Social Services and Salvation Army.
Collections begin November 1st and run through December 9th at 2 pm.; food and monetary donations can be dropped off at Fredericktown Interchurch at 57 N. Main St. during our business hours of 10-4 Monday – Friday (Do not leave donations outside). Checks can be mailed to PO Box 301, Fredericktown OH 43019 and made payable to Fredericktown Interchurch FFTH.
We appreciate all donations but due to the amount of space in our food pantry we are suggesting the following items for donations as they are the most needed and not available through our food source:
Cereal, 64oz bottles of fruit juice, small bottles of ketchup and mustard, small bags or boxes (1 lb?) of granulated sugar, boxed potatoes (mashed, au gratin, scalloped…), pasta sauce, soup (mushroom, celery, chicken, tomato, chicken noodle), peanut butter, small bottles of dish soap, paper towels, bath – shower products and personal hygiene products. Gluten-Free products are also needed.
Canned vegetables, canned fruit, canned pasta & pasta side pouches are not needed as they are readily available through Mid Ohio Food Bank.
*We cannot accept food that is past the use by, best by or expiration date.*
