Can Food Drive

November 12, 2019

Dear Parent or Guardian,

From November 1st—November 21st, our school will start collecting canned goods and dry goods for a school-wide competition. Our food drive will help feed hungry families in our community.  Community food drives like ours help make sure those children and their families can get emergency food assistance when they need it.

Please give what you can. One grocery bag of food can provide many meals to those in need. Every single donation helps, and together we hope our combined donations will make a real difference.

We are asking for nutritious canned and dry goods. Here are some suggestions:

Dried beans

Fruit canned in its own juices


Canned soups

Beef stew



Canned chicken

100% fruit juices



Condiments like ketchup and salad dressing


Peanut butter

Multigrain and low-sugar cereals

Granola bars

Thanksgiving/ Holiday Baskets items

Boxed or bagged Mashed potatoes

Canned Yams

Canned Green beans

Canned corn

Canned cranberries

Bag of stuffing


French fried onions

Cream of mushroom soup

Canned vegetables

Donations will be collected each morning in your student’s classrooms. Help us make a difference!

Thank you for your help!
