The Best Items for fund/food drives:

 

 

MONETARY DONATIONS          For every $1 donated Montgomery Area Food Bank can provide 6.5 pounds of food product.

 

Any type of boxed goods:           Dry milk, dinner boxes, instant potatoes, pastas, cereals (high-fiber), etc…

 

Any type of canned vegetables:    Green beans, peas, okra, limas, asparagus, carrots, broccoli, mixed vegetables, corn, etc… (low sodium)

 

Any type of canned fruits:           Peaches, pears, fruit cocktail, applesauce, apricots, plums, prunes, pineapple chunks, etc… (low sugar/syrup)

 

Any type of canned meats/proteins:      

                                                Any dried beans, tuna, salmon, ravioli, spaghetti w meatballs, chicken and rice, beef stew, chili, spam, nuts, peanut butter, deviled ham, etc…

 

Any and all fresh produce that is in good condition:

But, only if it can be brought in, in a very timely manner and not squished or rotten.

 

Cleaning supplies and hygiene products, these are especially needed due to food

stamps not allowing them to purchase these type of items.

 

Pet foods                                   Our special friends and other children        (animals have to eat too)

 

All non-perishable goods are a wonderful source of foods to collect for a food

drive!!!  Aim for very little sodium/salt/syrups/sugars—high in protein/fiber

 

Fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables are the best for you and the lowest in sodium

content.  However, these are not good items to collect on a food drive simply

because they are perishable.
