Food for Thought: More Month Than Money Pantry update

From Randy Oftedal, Big Red Pantry Chairperson
“The life of a man consists not in seeing, but in active charity and in willing service.” — Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Here is a suggestion: next time you go shopping and see a bargain, buy an extra one for our pantry. Even a small donation will help. 
I know we all recycle, our pantry needs empty egg cartons.
Special thanks go out to:
Cheryl Dobson for volunteering to start our soup kitchen project.
John and Jacquie short for sharing their abundance of eggs with our pantry. (And we share our abundance of excess produce with their chickens!)
About that abundance of produce: We’ve been graciously gifted produce from OOOOBY when they have extra to spare. That means our fridge is full of gorgeous carrots, beautiful root veggies, and more! 
Here is an idea of what we currently have available in the pantry. Please, if you know of anyone in our Big Red community who can benefit from the pantry, let them know about it. We are open Monday through Friday from 10–3, and one Sunday mornings. No strings attached.
Canned goods
Cereal, pasta, and diapers
Grains and hygeine.
Soup, thanks to Cheryl Dobson!
Yams, garlic, onions.
Magazine exchangee: Do you subscribe to any food magazines? After you’re done reading them, drop ’em off and pick up a copy you haven’t read!

Thanks to all for your service and charity,
