Send us canned goods for the uncertain times ahead
Oct. 19, 2020
When emergencies make it impossible for Friendship Trays to deliver food, what do our recipients do?
Our answer for years has been to distribute, in advance of any emergency, a bag of food with long shelf life that recipients could tuck away. Then when ice covers the roads or the kitchen’s electricity goes kaput, recipients will have something to tide them over until the next delivery.
We have long referred to these bags of food, mostly canned goods, as “snow packs,” but they serve during other times as well.
For an upcoming distribution of snow packs, we have about 100 ready, but would like to double that. Could you help us by donating food and having your favorite online service deliver your donation to us? Here’s what we need most urgently:
- Green beans
- Green peas
- Canned beans (black, pinto, kidney, etc)
- Snack items (like Lance crackers)
For the canned goods, we prefer the pop-top cans. Ordering from Amazon, Wal-Mart, Costco, etc. is very efficient and helpful for us as well.
Have your donation delivered to Friendship Trays at 2401-A Distribution St. Charlotte NC 28203.
As always, we are very thankful for all of the items people have donated. Donations are at the heart of this work.
