Perinton Food Cupboard
The Perinton Food Shelf
The food shelf has been blessed with many generous donations from churches, businesses and community groups. But, inevitably, as food items come in, they also go out as they are delivered to the needy in the community.
At the present time, the Perinton Food Cupboard needs: Canned beef stew, Canned corned beef hash, Coffee (regular, small cans preferred), Flour,Kids' juice boxes or packets, Paper towels, Pudding mix, Salad dressing, Sugar (1 lb.) and Toilet paper.
PLEASE CHECK ALL EXPIRATION DATES ! ! ! ! ! No glass containers, please !
IMPORTANT: The Perinton Food Shelf is also looking for volunteers.
The group also needs more volunteers to pack and deliver food - Very part-time but certainly needed !!!! If you could help with any of these tasks and/or for further information, please phone 425-7410 and leave a message.
