Priority Needs

Food

Many people are struggling with day to day life and are finding it difficult to put a meal on the table for the family.  So many children go to school without breakfast and barely have enough food for lunch.
Any type of non-perishable food is acceptable.  If it comes out of your pantry, it can be used.  Ingredients to make meals, packet meals, soups, pasta, spices, it will all be gratefully accepted as long as it is still in date.
