November 9, 2022
The annual Food For Families drive is scheduled for Friday, November 18, in Whitney and throughout the area.
All November donations will be counted toward the Lake Whitney Food Bank’s goal of 65,000 pounds, although the official campaign day is November 18.
The Lake Whitney Ministerial Alliance food bank operates completely through donations and volunteers. No one is paid. All donations go directly to providing for those in need.
Any donation is appreciated, but the following non-perishable food products are most needed: canned goods, such as green beans, corn, spaghetti sauce, chili, stew, Spaghetti Os, ravioli, tuna, Vienna sausage, fruit cocktail, canned soup (chicken noodle, tomato and vegetable); and microwavable items like ramen noodles, Cup Noodles, mac and cheese cups and beef ravioli cups.
The food bank also needs breakfast cereal and breakfast bars, 18 oz. plastic jars of peanut butter, boxed goods (mac and cheese, Hamburger Helper, mashed potatoes, Stovetop Stuffing, spaghetti), children’s items (juice boxes, Pop Tarts, fruit cups and Rice Krispies Treats).
The food bank does not need sugar, flour or baby foods. Please do not bring glass containers.
Items may be dropped off at the food bank, located at 100 Sims Drive in Whitney.
Monetary donations are also greatly appreciated. Your monetary donations go a long way. The food bank works with Tarrant County Food Bank to maximize monetary contributions. Two trucks arrive every month with free fresh produce and eggs.
Food for Families is a joint annual project for the Longhorn Council, Boy Scouts of America, H.E.B. Grocery Company and KWTX News 10 of Waco.
KWTX will be televising some of the donations here during the day. Donations stay in our community.
Monetary donations may be mailed to Our Daily Bread, c/o Lake Whitney Ministerial Alliance, P.O. Box 1502, Whitney, TX 76692 or made online at http://www.lakewhitneyministeri alalliance.org.
You can also drop off a check at the food bank and get a receipt for tax deduction.
