Help 'Home Games 4 Hunger' Replenish Local Food Bank
Bring non-perishable food items to the Neshaminy vs. Pennsbury High School game tonight to help "Home Games 4 Hunger" replenish a local food bank following Hurricane Sandy.
In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, food banks are at a critical low for non-perishable items.
"Home Games 4 Hunger," an initiative created by the local Koch family, will be holding a non-perishable food collection drive at the home Neshaminy High School football game against Pennsbury High School tonight beginning at 2:30 p.m.
The food collected at the game will be donated to the Penndel Food Pantry on Durham Road where over 26,000 people from the community were able to get food last year -- 11,000 of which were children.
Volunteer parents and the Neshaminy cheerleaders will be at the gate to collect food donations.
Some suggestions of items to be donated include: peanut butter, jelly, tuna, pasta sauce, canned beans, canned vegetables, canned/jarred fruits, applesauce, soup, dry pasta, mac 'n cheese, cereal, juice boxes, rice and condiments. Home Games 4 Hunger asks that previously opened items or glass bottles/jars not be donated.
Home Games 4 Hunger held a food collection drive at last week's home football game against Abington High School. More than 150 pounds of non-perishable food items were donated. To date, Home Games 4 Hunger has donated 1,000 pounds of non-perishable food items to the food bank.
