We currently need a couple of important items at the Storehouse: peanut butter and baby diapers. Both are valued by our clients and our shelves are running low. With your help we can continue to provide these essentials.
Peanut butter is a staple in any household that’s trying to stretch their food budget, and it’s very appreciated by the clients who visit the Storehouse. Peanut butter is packed with heart healthy fats and is a great source of protein. Plus, it makes a simple, quick lunch or snack. Beyond the classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich, adding a spoonful to smoothies or oatmeal makes for a hardy, filling breakfast. It’s also a kid’s snack favorite when it is paired with apple slices or made into “ants on a log” (spread on celery and dotted with raisins). There are so many possibilities from one jar of peanut butter.
The other key item we are low on this month is diapers. The Storehouse supports nearly 2,000 children under the age of 5. These expensive items are truly a gift to moms and babies in need. Our baby shelf is an essential resource to low-income families, but it is often the emptiest shelf at the food pantry. Thanks to recent baby food drives and grants we are in pretty good shape for baby food, but diapers of all sizes would be appreciated.
Donations can be dropped off at the back door of the Storehouse during these hours:
Wednesday & Friday 8:30am- 3:30pm
(open some Thursdays, please refer to our calendar)
If you are interested in organizing a peanut butter or diaper drive please call us at (505) 842-6491 to have blue barrels delivered and picked up at your school, office, community group, or church.
