Bring Cans for the Food Drive!!!!

Let’s share the love!

Most Needed Items

As a part of our dedication to providing healthier food to families, the ACFB would like to ask you, our food and fund drive champions, to help us achieve this goal. Vulnerable communities and those who live within them often lack access to healthy food or the resources to acquire it with. These same communities are also disproportionately affected by diet-related chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer and obesity. By providing the healthiest food possible to our neighbors in need, we can help in the fight against two battles that are intrinsically linked: hunger and chronic disease in our community.

Focusing on highly nutritious foods, we aim to distribute food that will enable people suffering the ill-effects of hunger and poverty to feel stronger and healthier. Some of the most needed food items are:

Whole grain foods
Whole wheat pasta
Brown rice
Whole grain cereal
Whole wheat flour
Whole grain crackers
Plain oatmeal
Shelf stable milk (cow, soy, rice, etc.)
Fruit, dried or canned in light syrup or juice
Low-sodium, no salt added vegetables
Low-sodium pasta sauce in plastic container
Foods high in protein
Natural peanut butter (no hydrogenated oil)
Dried beans
Dried peas
Dried lentils
Canned tuna – canned in water, not oil
Canned salmon – canned in water, not oil
Canned chicken – canned in water, not oil
Unsalted nuts
100% fruit and/or vegetable juice
Cooking oil
Olive oil
Canola oil

Families and individuals who struggle to put food on the table also have a tough time with the household essentials that many of us take for granted. In addition to food, these non-food items are greatly needed and appreciated:

Paper products
Diapers
Toiletries
