Food Pantry Needs Donations

The Good Samaritan Food Pantry in Adel serves the school districts of Van Meter and ADM (Adel, De Soto, and Minburn). The pantry regularly distributes over 4000 cans each month, and the need continues to grow.

Cash donations are wonderful because the money can be used for purchases at the Food Bank of Iowa at 14¢ a pound. Donations of goods are, of course, also welcome.

The pantry is asking for:

Foods most needed:
* Peanut butter
* Jelly
* Bottled juice
* Cereal (hot & cold)
* Shampoo / Conditioner
* Toothpaste
* Hamburger Helper

* Fruits
* Flour
* Sugar
* Crackers
* Canned meats (tuna & chicken)
* Spaghetti sauce
* Pasta

(Remember to check your expiration dates on canned goods, as the pantry
cannot use expired foods.)

Personal Care Items Needed:
* Toothbrushes
* Bar soap
* Toothpaste
* Toilet paper
* Deodorant

* Laundry detergent
* Shampoo
* Conditioner
* Facial tissue
* Dish detergent
