Action Tips: 11 Foods to Request for Your Drive

Food drive

Variety is key when you're running a food drive. (Gotta keep things nutritionally balanced.) And while it's best to check with the food pantry first to find out what they need the most, here's a list of the top foods that are generally requested:

  1. Peanut Butter (should be in plastic jars) 
  2. Tuna
  3. Canned Soup
  4. Dry Soup Packets
  5. Canned Stews
  6. Cereal
  7. Canned Fruits
  8. Canned Vegetables
  9. Pasta
  10. Rice (should be in boxes) 
  11. Instant Potatoes

For your general safety, opt for food in plastic containers instead of glass whenever possible. (Broken glass = bad news.)
